I have emerged from Mexico and feel very sorry for the lack of communication and blogging I have done this last year!
With all good intentions, I wanted to blog often; however, life got busy and this fell to the side. So here is an update before I flood this blog with all I have done this year!
After moving to Mexico at the end of July 2014, I worked at the John F. Kennedy American International School for a few months before realizing I would need to change schools. Having accumulated a large amount of student loans, and the U.S. dollar to Peso exchange rate forever climbing I couldn’t afford to stay for long in Mexico. In January 2016, I headed back to TORF at Queen’s University to find a job that would both support me and my student loans. I decided on Germany (Bahrain was a close second).
So here I am back in Montreal for the summer (although with this weather I am not sure there has been a summer), waiting for a new adventure to begin in August. In mid-August I will be heading to Frankfurt, Germany to teach at PHORMS. I have been assigned grade 3 and will be teaching English, Mathematics, and Social Studies to two classes in English. To clarify this for people, they spend their day 50/50 in English and German – or so I have been led to believe. I will clarify this when I am in the trenches.
For now this is my update; however, stayed tuned because within the next few days I will be posting all of my holidays, adventures, and life of living in QRO 🙂
