The Next Big Move

It's official: I am looking for a new job! Geoff and I had decided a few months ago that we wanted to move to Europe after this school year, the reason being that in a few years, we might be married with kids and will not have the same freedom we have now to travel and look around.

It took me a while to tell all three of my supervisors (mostly because they're each insanely busy, and it's not one of those things you want to say during the passing period), but now the deed is done. Next up: Looking for a job!! Scary. I don't have IB experience, which is a biggie when looking for European jobs, so Geoff and I will have to be extra flexible. But, we're hopeful that since I'm starting relatively early (now), that I'll find a job by June 2011. :) (Geoff's working on getting his British passport in the meanwhile.) The exciting part is that we get to go to somewhere different, that hopefully will also allow me to teach something different (ie. AP Calculus or IB)!

So, keep your fingers crossed for me that I won't be jobless (and homeless) by June.


  1. Keeping fingers crossed, but also hoping that you will consider Sweden. Salaries are not so high, but there is good job security and it's extremely child- and parenting-friendly.
    I'll keep an eye out for IB-jobs (just don't take mine! :)) or even at the English school. but I should warn you that most schools won't even know they're hiring until May-June.
