Last year, when I was looking for a teaching gig in a high school, I signed up for the educational employment site Teachers-Teachers.com. I figured it would be a good way to distribute my resume and to tap into specific job searches that targeted only those positions that I would be interested in considering.
At LEAST once a week, though, these people torture me with offers of work in exotic places. Last week, it was the Mariana Islands (go ahead and click on the link – it’s like a mini-vacation in itself). This morning, they’re hitting me up to come and work in the US Virgin Islands.
Seriously. It’s inhumane…
Located in the Caribbean Sea, the United States Virgin Islands could truly be considered the Caribbean’s Melting Pot; students and their parents represent a multitude of cultures (i.e. Caribbean, East Indian, Spanish, French, Dutch, Asian, American and many more). The United States Virgin Islands Department of Education currently employs over 2,000 teachers and other educational professionals in a variety of areas including Elementary Education, School Psychology, English, Social Studies and Special Education.

-Pension Plans with the Government Employees’ Retirement System (GERS) including disability, death, and retirement benefits.
