I'm Alicia. I've applied to teach English in Abu Dhabi or Dubai. I applied via Teach Away, and have been successful through the telephonic interview. So I'm now anxiously awaiting the next interview for the January intake.
I am also a single parent. My son will be 4 years old by the time we get there ( Note my optimism ).
Therefore, my concerns and apprehensions are many and great. I suppose then, that you guys could assist by sharing whatever information and experiences you feel I aught to be aware of, be it from the perspective of a South African, a teacher, a single mom, or anything else you may feel may be valuable to share.
