Need Some Advice Regarding Moving to Cochabamba, Bolivia
(Silver Spring, MD USA)
Hola, I am an American whose wife is Bolivian. We have 3 children and live right outside of Washington DC. My oldest son is now off to college and my wife and I are tired of this rat race so we are planning on heading to her hometown by birth, Cochabamba. I have visited before, as have all my children, so we have some idea of what to expect. We have the advantage of her parents having two homes in Cochabamba we can reside in since they also reside here in the states. What we are more focused on is the school system, my girls are 8 and 15 but they do speak Spanish (my oldest begrudgingly). We are wondering if it is better to pay the costs of having them in the "American School" since it follows the same type of curriculum?
I would also like to know about possible teaching jobs. Of course realizing teachers get paid little, I still would like to try my hand at teaching English. I am by no means TESOL certified, but I have taught classes before on a volunteer basis for those who English was a second language and I loved it. Any tips on this would be appreciated (possible schools or places to find private students).
I thank you in advance, and looking forward to communicating with other expats from around the world.
