It may seem weird to people back home, and to people even in the mission community, but here we decide what to do for the ‘year ahead’ in November of the previous year. And by year ahead, I mean the next academic year – Aug 2015 to June 2016.
So now is decision time for all the teachers here.
We are past the middle of November which means a bunch of people have confirmed they are staying. And a different bunch have said they are leaving.
And then there are those like me. Stuck in the middle.
Do I stay or do I go?
