Here's a thot, why the hell - especially in your recovery - would you want to work for an institution like that? Just something to let your brain chew on.
it didn't used to be this way - things have changed since we started here. we loved it when we started here. then the super got rid of the original principal - replaced him with a crony 2 years ago. that started the decline. then when the new guy couldn't hack it, earlier this year, we got a temporary replacement who is also not qualified. it has only become apparent in the past few months how serious the problem is - and how difficult it is to correct it.
we have to stay through the end of school as per contract. we are seriously considering the next step. but changing jobs and moving when you are overseas is not an easy thing - especially from one country to another. it involves selling most of your household stuff, shipping special items - and basically starting over somewhere else. not to mention visas and work permits and so on. we'd prefer to solve the problems rather than desert the sinking ship if possible.
we didn't take the jobs to work for "the man" - but to contribute to the lives and educations of the kids - and help the families of expats.
