Well, if you've been following my blog you know that I've been looking for a TEFL job. I taught English in Poland for a year from 2007-2008, loved it, and am now looking to head out into the world again!! I always thought I would be crossing an ocean (I had interviews for schools in Micronesia, Guatemala and Russia). But now an opportunity has come up - waaaaay up - in the North of Canada. I may have the chance to go and work with the community of Fort Providence or Fort Good Hope, NWT, assisting in their school. Wow!! It would be such a challenging experience...but one that I'm getting more and more excited about the more I think about it.
Maurice: Do you believe in synchronicity? (that odd experience where two or more events that are apparently unrelated occur together in a meaningful manner.)
I'd have to say yes, because the day I heard back from the organization I may be working with up there, was the same day I picked up my latest read: "Where the Pavement Ends. Canada's Aboriginal Recovery Movement and the Urgent Need for Reconciliation" The needs of Canada's First Nations are so numerous and seem so huge. Would I really be able to help in some small way? Am I really headed to the Northwest Territories??
Only time will tell.
