Not so long ago I wrote I have been offered a teaching position at a school in Ecuador. Just before accepting it, I got an e-mail from another school in Ecuador who wanted to talk with me.
One would think I have a world of experience teaching with school calling from out of the blue but that's not the case. 6 Months of volunteer teaching and years ago 3 years of volunteer teaching Dutch is all I have.
Still, I now have 2 offers on the table and suddenly I find myself in a luxuries place, not knowing which to choose. Both are, as can be expected, low paying. One however comes with a small apartement where the other one pays less and I have to take care of my own living arrangements.
So, what to choose.... a normal school where I will be a teacher assistant, teaching mainly young children in a warm part of the country, surrounded by only locals, or a language school in the Andes where I will find myself teaching teens and adults with maybe some room for private students, surrounded by other foreigners teaching.
I have to make my decision the latest tomorrow, when they are all back from the carnaval holiday and I still have no idea....
