Back to School Again

January came around and I still hadn't found a job, so I decided I would go to school to learn to teach English as a Second Language.

I took a 60 hour course in late January and then on February 8th, I received my TESOL/TESL certification. I've applied at the local school district to teach English to non-native speakers at the Community Education center, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Once we retire to Costa Rica, I can use this skill to tutor Costa Ricans that may want to learn English.

I continue to search for full time employment, but the job market is really tough right now. John continues to stay really busy with his work, but we hope to take a week or two and head back down to Costa Rica for some vacation time in the next couple of months.
