I have got a teaching job in Dubai at a Gems School, quite exciting!! It would be great to know if anyone else is moving to Dubai this summer to Teach?
I have a seen a few older post's but nothing that recent.

Thanks :)

Hi, I am in the interview process with a GEMS school! I'm very hopeful that it will work out. If it does i'd love to keep in touch! I have visited some GEMS school when I was there last month, including GEMS World Academy...it looks very nice!

Hi, I am going out alone too. So would be great to keep in touch. Do you have accommodation with your package?

Hi :) When I started applying in December, it seemed so far away, but now everything is coming around so fast. Just in the process of sorting all of my visa paperwork out, stress!

Yeah I do get accomodation, a furnished apartment but am not sure where yet. I pay the bills though! Do you?

I did 3 years at RDS, lived in Mirdif and loved it. I'm heading back to work at DSO this September. Dubai is a cracking place to live. For the lady organising her own accommodation- Dubizzle is a great site for apartments, secondhand cars and furniture.

Hi all, I'm moving out in August on my own too. Taking up a teaching post at a GEMS secondary school. I'd like to be a part of the group on fb too. It's making me happy to see others in same boat as I was getting a bit nervous.

Yes I am heading to Dubai too! I am a primary teacher and I will be living in Mirdiff. I went to the UAE alone the first time but now I am returning with a friend. Whilst school can be great for having ready-made friends, your life can revolve around the place. Its good to have an outlet outside of work. The FB groups sounds like a good idea, I ll try and find it on FB!
