Stuffed

Just got back from a wonderful four course meal with my new Principal.

Galleria de Paco – A restaurant painted to look like the Sistine Chapel all done in spray paint.  An enjoyable meal. $$$

We were able to chat, learn a little bit more about the position, and find out some of the tricks of living in Dahka, Bangladesh.

We must have asked a million questions.  I must have sounded like a complete idiot asking the same questions over and over again. And I must have said “we’re very excited” about a million times. I hope he doesn’t go back to his hotel and say “whoops.  Now I am stuck with those idiots.”

We have a lot to do.

Crazy, topsy turvy world

11:20 am on February 5, 2011

Jenni and I signed contracts for the 2011-2013 school year.

We will be teaching at the American International School in Dhaka, Bangladesh (AIS/D)

I will be teaching Drama at the Middle School level and I will be the Theater Manager (Programming, development).

Jenni will be a fourth grade teacher.

Our new mascot will be the Tiger.

Our world was just turned upside down.  Literally.

Day 2

We get to sleep in a little bit more this morning.  No need to check in right at 7:00.  We know the way there.  We had two appointments in the morning – more like check-ins at 8:00, but met with one of them last night (Brazil). So, we just have one appointment at 8:00.  We have the follow up interview (2nd) with AIS/D at 9:00 and then some “Orientations” throughout the day.  The orientations are a chance for you to learn a little bit more about a particular country or school.  Ben at AIS/D said he really wants us to come to that orientation.  The orientations are definitely optional, but a chance to network and find out more about a particular country.

A little breakfast, a little getting ready and then we are on to day 2.

Keep an open mind, keep an open mind, keep an open mind.  Be flexible, be flexible, be flexible.
