I am in the process of figuring out potential jobs for next year. This weekend I am participating in an international job fair for teachers. Teaching internationally is something I have wanted to do for many years, but is certainly a substantial decision. As I go through the list of potential schools that I will meet and interview with, I’m aware that my allergies are a consideration in the location I may end up. I have lived abroad before, but never in a country where English is not the first language spoken. More than likely, if I do end up getting a job abroad, it will be in a country where English is not the primary language. This adds more complexity to the situation, but certainly does not deter me from looking at jobs in these countries. I am aware that looking for international jobs with food allergies adds to an already complex decision, but I’m excited by the possibilities and look forward to writing more about the experience and decision making process.
