They (my current employers) have accepted my counter offer and it looks as if I am really staying in Yachiyo!!! Now... I have a little (and I mean a little) more money in my pocket each month and I don't have to worry about purchasing a car or taking care of the maintance. The contract is being drawn up today snd should be in my hands and signed by the end of the week (hopefully) or at the very latest, early next week.
The only down side is now I need to get my ass in motion and finish the curriculium for next year and get as many classes planned for the first semester as I can before I go on vacation in 3 days. As long as I at least have the cirriculum done, I can finish my class worksheets/ activities/ games / songs / flashcards / everything else... upon my return to work on April 1st. Thank the Goddess, I don't start teaching again until the 10th.
Sending all of my Yachiyo Love to ya,
