And this is how it began…
Life is always crazily busy, but sometimes it’s over the top. Some times you gotta tell yourself to just stop and listen to YOU — not your bills, not your boss, not your loved ones, not your whomever is telling you what to do.
One day I realized I just needed to stop lassoing my tornado of to-dos and alleged responsibilities and figure out what and where I wanted to be corraling tornadoes next. Long story short I finally clicked submit on posting overseas applications.
I chose to apply through www.teachaway.com
I’ve also placed an application with DODEA, but so many people apply it’s hard to get noticed (lol If any hiring principals just happen to be on this page, I swear I’m as dedicated to my students as I am my travels, and I’m a great collaborater). Update: um, turns out I did eventually end up getting hired by DODEA (whoop whoop it’s possible!) http://www.dodea.edu/Offices/HR/onlineapplication/index.cfm
Another organization I’ve thought about using (because it’s been highly recommended) is https://www.iss.edu/ I chose not to use them yet because of their fee, however, they’re still on my list of possibilities if TeachAway doesn’t work out for me.
Two other agencies I’ve heard good things about are Search Associates and TeacherHorizons.
I went with TeachAway because I’ve read a lot about them, and, well, that’s the one fate had me click on, and it worked for me.
If you’re scrolling through my blog trying to learn more about what applying is like, all blog posts dated January 2014 through August 2014 should be helpful.
Posts from late August 2014 to summer 2017 give you a taste of what life in the UAE is like, BUT it’s from my perspective. We each have our own view. August 2017 on gives you a taste of what living in Belgium is like — again from my perspective.
Hopefully, you’ll enjoy reading about some of my adventures as much as I enjoy living them. Thanks for scrolling along.
