I'll try and make this short and quick. LOL! Soon enough you will see that is quite laughable w/ me. Anyway, my husband and I have always had the dream of retiring in the Caribbean. But recently I realized that if we waited till then we will NEVER make it. Sooooo, we are looking to relocate in a year or 2 (sooner if doable) to St. Croix with our 2 daughters who are 9 & 6.
After reading this entire site, though not every single forum and topic of discussion, we are starting the planning process. I have my degree in Elementary Education and already scoped out the DVI Education website and found out I have everything need to teach there. I just have to apply. I also contacted a local realtor in St. Croix and found out that St. Croix is in need of teachers. My husband has been working in the restaurant industry since he was 16 and is a Manager at a high volume restaurant.
Both of our children will attend public schools there. What I would like to know is which of the elementary schools would you suggest are "the best." Please don't comment if you are going to tell me how horrible the public schools are over there. I've worked in low income school districts and know for a fact that there are plenty of great dedicated teachers doing their best to teach with what they are given.
Also, I don't want to live in the Upscale east end areas of the island. I want to live and be apart of the community. However, I don't want to have to look over my shoulder 24/7. What neighborhoods/quarters would you suggest?
I have other questions as well but my post is already long enough. LOL. Thanks in advance for any input.
