Good News Bad News

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
-Mary Oliver, poet

Pam got good news/bad news from Norway today. One of her best friends in Trondheim who was planning to leave has decided to stay on at the school for another year, which is good. Another friend at the school is thinking he might stay also, since we're coming back and this other teacher is staying and we're all friends... also good.

Except there were three teachers leaving and two currently on maternity leave, so we were looking at possibly 1-3 openings. Now there may be two less than that, so who knows what will happen. We'll keep our fingers crossed!

Another teacher at the school who left last year has begun teaching in Malaysia. She reports that the school pays for them to stay at a 5-star resort where the kids go swimming and scuba diving every day after school. She makes so much money that her husband doesn't have to work. Every year they have several openings, and she's encouraging Pam to come to Malaysia for a year or two. Then there's those offers from Australia...

Many possibilities for the future -- wow!
