Hi I don't know if anybody can help me on this forum but I really want to work in Egypt as a primary teacher. I have already had the opportunity to work in a very well-established school and regretfully turned it down mainly because my wife does not want to go anywhere and I also have a 3 year old daughter. I currently work in Cyprus at a well-established school and have been at the same school for ten years. In that time I have also married into a Cypriot family and my career (and pay!) has not developed in the way that I would like. I feel as though my quality of life, professionally, socially and financially is not the one that I expected when I moved here from the UK ten years ago and now feel as though I would be taking a huge risk by leaving my wife and particularly my child. I am still in touch with people from the school and I have been in contact with somebody who was in Egypt for 19 years and loved it. I visited Cairo 2 years ago and fell in love with the idea of living and working there and due to it being so close to Cyprus it made perfect sense. I also had friends working there. However, something held me back (mainly my daughter) and I am at the point now at the age of 40 that I need a change of scene as Cyprus is restricting. However, I am concerned that I won't be able to cope with the change such as a tougher workload (although where I work is not easy) and I am afraid of getting out of my comfort zone. On the other hand, if I stay I will be forever faced with the worrying possibility of having no choice other than to send my daughter through a Greek education system, a huge mortgage, small career prospects and few chances to go abroad on holiday Is there anyone who can advise me? Apologies for the rant.
