Greetings!! Nihao !!

I am interested in returning to China as a Teacher; however I'm not sure what options are available now that I am 59 years old. I know there are restrictions in some areas; I would consider other positions (i.e. Administrator, etc) for which I would also qualify.
Appreciate feedback from someone with their finger on the pulse of current hiring trends for English Speaking Teachers in China and Age restrictions. (My last assignment there was in 2008, Meizhou, Jiaying University).
Appreciate responses!!
