I am a 35 year old Black Canadian Science Teacher. Before I got my teaching degree I went to Japan and taught English with the Jet Program and loved it. I decided that teaching was for me. I came back to Canada got my teaching degree and started working at the high school I went to. In April, I got a letter that said I would be laid off for 2013-2014 due to decreased students numbers. Sadly, after teaching here for seven years, I would have to move on. I asked myself what is it that I want to do in life. I love travel and adventure. I decided to apply to teach in the Middle East. This blog is chronicling that experience.
