STT bound in OCTOBER!!
I'm moving to St. Thomas the first week of October, and am looking for a short-term rental place, as well as an apartment/room to rent thereafter. I'm open to having roommates (guys or girls) if others are moving near the same time, or those who are already there need a new addition! 🙂 I'm 23, from Kentucky, and can't wait to move! Would really like to meet lots of new people and hopefully find some friends to be newbies with! I just graduated from college with a double major in biology & chemistry and a minor in physics. I'd love to hear from anyone, PM or email me. I appreciate all the advice or comments in advance!
Congrats on your decision. I did the smame thing when I was your age. I know a couple of schools that could you use your vast knowledge of science. You do not need a teaching degree. Just a desire to do something constructive for the community you cant wait to move to.
If not, good luck.
Go to the section of this webstie that discusses education and schools, and look at the list of private schools.
All Saints, St Peter and Paul, Antilles, etc... There, you will find a their contact information. Write up a resume and cover letter that illustrates your experiences with science and anything education related--tutoring, resident advising, counseling, etc...
I know there is a large turn over of teachers in the first two schools. Like myself, a lot of teachers teach for a year or two, and then move on (some with intentions of moving back). I taught middle school science at All Saints and I know that they--like almost all schools in America--have difficulity recruiting science teachers.
Trust me, it will be great experience. My best memories in the islands are not the beaches or the bars but the students, their families, my coworkers and their kids.
Hi jessica, I didn't get a e-mail from you like you said. Try it again or feel free to give me a call.
firstname.lastname@example.org or 586-260-2854. I see you are also looking to get into teachin. I am a highschool teacher and will also be looking for a teaching job when I get down there. Looking forward to hearing from you. Martin
I also am moving, and taking it serious- no seasonal worker here!
I should have left last week or so, I sold/got rid of all my big things, moved out of my apt, and now I just need to wait for this damn car to sell.
We got the leftovers of ernesto up here in PA for about a week and nobody wants to look at a car in the rain.
But...... once it sells I am packed and set.
I dont think I am looking for a roomate however if the place was nice enough (big 2 bedroom) i could swing it.
Abit back i saw a huge real nice place, view of the ocean 1 1/2 bathrooms, LV, DR, W/D, etc for $1000 a month. I could get used to splitting that with someone. $500 each is not bad at all. I just worry about roomates and keeping a place clean and up to date on rent and bills, "you run your A/C all the time, i never run mine" wapa bill!!!, etc
So next week I hope to be on STT and i'll keep in touch
Good luck to all
