I am an American Teacher who will be working at the American International School in Dhaka, Bangladesh starting on July 30, 2011. I will be working there for at least 2 years. Who knows after that.
This blog is from my perspective and my experiences – to remember the adventure that is Bangladesh. It will be a little bit about life, education and theater.
I have been teaching for 10 years as a licensed Special Education Teacher, Social Studies and most recently as Theater Arts. Theater Arts is my passion as an educator and anything prior to that was just a misguided diversion.
My wife and two kids will be traveling with me. My wife will be teaching 4th grade and my two kids will be students at our school.
Our mascot will be the Tigers.
Right now, we live in North Minneapolis and own a cute Tudor home just two blocks off of a historic parkway. We love our community school and will be sad to leave our neighbors. I have been in the same school district for four years.
