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.


  1. If you are planning to go to Costa Rica, I suggest to take a look at this website http://www.costaricanconnection.net where they can help you arrange all your traveling needs like transportation, hotels, activities and more. Check it out, I am sure you will find it very useful.

  2. Thanks for your comment, but I lived in Costa Rica for many years. We have a home there, so we don't need any travel assistance. The web site you are promoting is really for tourist that are not familiar with the country.

  3. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that I don't think that poster looked at your page, AT ALL.
