    Hi All:

    I want to thank everyone for the valuable information on this forum. I am writing from Wisconsin, USA, which has finally found spring. After another long winter, I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on a move to the Phils. I used to live in Hong Kong, and spent most of my holidays in the Phils, many in Dumaguete. While I know everyone has their opinion of "paradise," I really felt the area fit my temperament, and I hope to make a more permanent move soon.

    I work in education, and with expanding virtual education options, I hope my next gig will be an online one. This will provide more geographical flexibility and hopefully less snow!

    I will keep perusing the site, but probably won't be able to contribute much until 2022, when I hope the smoke has cleared a bit. One thing I did notice on this site is an appetite for more international style education in Dumaguete. I wonder if that has changed any during the pandemic? Are most students there learning online? Have schools shut down?

    I know here in the states we have had to adapt several times, and many students and families are really struggling.

    I look forward to being a part of this community!

    Two of my Brother in-laws teach here and both are online loving it. Took some time to set up they said but once up and assisting the Students to format, they have much more time free to do other things other than teaching. Was told that another good thing is Students are now doing their actual homework instead of the Parents or another Family member whom generally have been doing it for them.

    Thanks Crystal. Do your brother-in-laws teach at a local or international school?
