Thank You and Goodbye

I am back in Canada and I have found a great job.  I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who has read this blog over the years.  Thank you to everyone you came up to me in the UAE and said that they read my blog.  Thank you.

All the best and if you are thinking of moving to the UAE, DO IT!

All Done!

Hello Readers, 
   I know that it has been a hot minute, but I am back in Canada.  I officially left ADEC and I can say that I survived 4 years working for ADEC.

The exit process wasn't as bad as it seemed on paper but there will be more on that later.  I am pleased to announce that I have found a job in Montreal, I will be teaching at an all boys school and I will be teaching Grade 7, 8, and 10 Science.  The last few months have been crazy, but I am so happy that things have turned out well.

More to come and thanks for reading!

All Finished!

Yesterday was a monumental day, I handed in my LAST project for my Master's degree.  I cannot believe that I am finished, I am so proud of myself, I am the first person in my family with a graduate degree.  This weekend we have a long weekend and I am heading to Istanbul in Turkey, very excited!

79 days left!

All Good Things Must Come To An End

Well readers, it is the end of an era.

Last week I put in my resignation to leave the UAE at the end of this school year.  I plan to go back to Canada and see where the wind takes me.

I want to thank each and every one of you that has commented, read and approached me in person.  To all those that have been inspired, keep your dreams alive.

I will graduate from my Masters program in April, I am looking to take a break from the classroom.  I am excited and nervous to see what next year will bring.

Just like I documented the entry process, I am going to TRY and document the exit process.  Last week, the resignation window opened, you have two weeks to fill in the application to apply to resign.  The application asks for basic information, name, expected departure date.  There are about 9 people that have to approve this resignation, the first one is your principal.  She approved mine, but she also had many questions for me as to why I was leaving, I explained that it was my time to go.  I now wait on the next approver.
