This could be my last post from the North. My employer played “musical chairs” with the teacherages and I was “caught out”. No teacherage for me… No shack in the community… I did not bring a tent… The employer will not allow me to camp in my classroom. Finally a decision was made and I am heading home tomorrow. Too bad. The last 20 PCs have just arrived. Six years old and 512MB P4s! It could be years before they plug them into the system if they cannot hire a full complement of teachers due to a shortage of teacherages. I was supposed to train local talent but that task is far from complete.
Time for a career-change I guess. Travelling the North looking for work is much less fun than it was years ago. I need something that will ease me into retirement. Consulting might do as long as I can telecommute. Writing might do but I doubt the pay would maintain my wife in the manner to which she has become accustomed
