I am currently considering a teaching job in Santiago with housing and airfare provided. I am very analytical, so I tend to research and evaluate information before making a fact-based decision.
Could those of you that have moved from the US to the DR please provide your thoughts on the positives and negatives of your experience? If you have taught at an International School, that experience would also be very helpful.
I am a Texas certified math teacher with 6 years of classroom experience. I do not have a significant other at this time, and my children are grown and quite supportive of my adventurous spirit.
I recently spent 10 days in the DR (as a tourist, but with the consideration that I would consider moving there for the right opportunity) and climbed Pico Duarte. I am also a long distance triathlete and I've been told that there is a good community of cyclists and runners there.
Thanks for any thoughts. If I accept the job, I will have about 2 1/2 weeks to make this all happen. It's a tight timeframe, but I think I can make it happen.
