Stephen has been very busy the past few months, but not just with his administrative duties at the Alliance Academy International. He has been searching for jobs at other international and/ or Christian schools that are looking for secondary administrators.
We have been feeling for quite some time that God was going to pull us out of our present ministry and locate us in a new ministry. We just keep praying to find out where exactly that is.
So far, he has applied to several schools both in and outside the U.S. and has had a few interviews. However, we have not had any solid offers at this time. Therefore, he decided to sign up for a conference that helps bring new staff to international schools located across South America. The association’s name is AASSA (Association of American Schools in South America). The job fair takes place from December 2-5 in Atlanta, Georgia (Link: http://www.aassa.com/recruiting_fair_schedule_2010.asp).
As part of his trip to this conference, Stephen is also planning to visit a school in Naples, Florida that has been interested in looking at the possibility of hiring him as a secondary principal. Stephen plans to fly to Miami, Florida on Tuesday, November 30 and drive to Naples. He will stay there until the morning of December 2 and then drive to Atlanta, Georgia to participate in the job fair. He will drive back to Florida on the afternoon of December 5 when he hopes to visit with Cristina’s side of the family for one evening before returning to Quito on the afternoon of December 6.
If you wish to get in touch with him during his time in the U.S., he will have the following cell phone number – 352-215-4524.
