Hi, I have posted earlier but have asked such general questions and got little response so I will be more specific. Is it possible to have some sort of family life when working in the Middle East? At present working in the UK I seem to eat , sleep and breathe work just to get it all done and good. Yes, I work for an outstanding rated Special Needs school which creates its own problems but I spend weekend, evenings and a lot of the holidays working. Is it any better over there? Not looking for an easy ride but would like a slightly 'easier' one if you get my drift. Would be coming over with husband and 2 kids and have lived in Kuwait (without kids and not as a teacher) before! Thanks in advance to all replies.
