Ken--my contract runs through the end of May
after that depends on whether I get a different job or resign here for another year (I'll still need a job)
Plan A is to get a teaching fellowship through Georgetown U., most likely in China, which would allow me to be home some, but I'm looking at 4 weeks at UC Riverside for a TEFL certificate program that will help get some positions (even with teaching experience and two graduate degrees, some positions require specific certification in TESL/TEFL)
Terry--I've been considering Okinawa. If I can stay healthy, I'll have some time off over the winter & could use a break. Seriously? 70 degree water in winter?
