Week Without Walls--Need New Ideas

Not the "normal" topic, but I suspect many good ideas could come from this group. Our high school, like many international high schools, sponsors a week without walls, a chance for students and teachers leave campus or the country and experience new things. No doubt many of you have been on these tr...

June Fairs: Search vs. ISS

Both are being held in the DC metro area one week apart in June. A trip to DC is reasonably convenient for us, but would rather not pay the $ to attend both if we don't need to. Any insight on which one is "usually" the better one to attend?

What's going on out there? Reality check

It's been quiet of late. And not heard much chatter about teachers saying how bleak, or not bleak, things are at schools in our new economic reality. From what I've read, fewer teachers were hired, and those that snagged new jobs (for the first time or merely moving between schools) secured position...

Recruiting Fairs and How to Not Attend Them

I keep hearing of more teachers getting jobs without attending a recruiting fair. I suspect with constant improvements in communication technologies this trend may continue, saving money and stress for teachers and admins alike. Common threads to pulling this off seem to be contacting schools well i...

Christmas Travel

I agree, no right answer, but Christmas was when we loved to travel, if the funds were there. We never went back "home." That's what summer break was for.

Hiroshima

My information on the school is 3 years old, so not worth sharing.

Dodds

My sense is that most are offered April/May, which is still too late for many folks. But I doubt there will be many offered this year with so many schools closing in June.

Laos

I've not taught there, but spent some time there a few years ago as a tourist and saw the school, but as they said, a new one is under construction. It's a lovely country and Vientiane is fine. Nothing slick and fancy, just real, and very cheap. I was there two years ago and found the internet to be...
