Super Math Teacher

The thoughts of a middle school math teacher

Moving on

on October 14, 2017

Okay, so I haven’t written anything in a month.  I have been busy, and well, what I wanted to write about needed to be finalized first.

So what is going on?  I knew I wanted to explore other job options at the end of my contract year this year.  So I had already activated my profiles with SEARCH and ISS.  I got everything updated over the summer, so that it would be ready when active recruiting started.  Recruitment for international jobs gets underway in October.  In fact, at AIS, we won’t even get our intent forms until we return from Fall Break on October 23.

Imagine my surprise, when a school reached out to me the beginning of September.  After a few emails, and 3 Skype sessions, as well as talking with a few people I know in the International community, I decided to accept the job offer at the school.

The school is a top school, located in……….are you ready?……………Ankara Turkey.  In spite of the current political turmoil in Turkey, after talking with some current and former colleagues and some future colleagues, I feel that this is the best decision for me.  I will be teaching Middle School Math (grade level to be determined) starting in August 2018 at Bilkent Laboratory and International School.  It is time to move on.
