Arrival at the Next Posting

For those of you who follow my blog or who just know me, you know that I've moved on.  While I loved Turkey and the people I met and worked with there with my whole heart it wasn't the best fit for me at the end of the day.  After two years, it was time to leave and seek out the next location and hopefully a stopping point for a little longer.  I ended up getting an offer from a small international school in Singapore.  While Asia wasn't on the top of my list, Singapore is an amazing city and so I was happy to accept.

I've now arrived in Singapore and settled into my 8th floor apartment.  I'm not right downtown like I had originally hoped, I sacrificed a commute for the peace of mind of having a large two bedroom condo with the amenities of a pool and gym.  I'm close to the train and, like all areas of the city, the malls and shopping centres.

I've just begun the orientation process at my new school and while there is a lot of sitting each day there is so much good information and a little inspiration to reach for my best teaching self each day.  I'm really excited to see where this will take me.  I'm also super happy with the staff that I've met so far, they are kind, caring and SUPER FUN!!!

I will be posting more soon.  I haven't really had much time to see much of the city outside of the malls etc.  Soon though... soon.  :)
