Calculus in the Congo Summary

I type "International Teaching Jobs" on the Google search line and find several sites, but I decide on one particularly useful site for which I pay a slight fee, and I find myself looking at a long list of teaching jobs all over the world. "Anything in Latin America," my wife asks, coming in to the room. "No, but here's one in the Congo." "Africa!?" "Yea, really. They want a calculus teacher! I can do that!" "Okay," Chantal says tentatively. "If you want." I hit the submit button and my resume is off across the world.

What follows are four action-packed years of living, working and traveling in sub-Saharan Africa.

This book chronicles the first year and a half of these adventures, including the day-to-day life of a teacher at The American School of Kinshasa from 2005-2007 who deals with a marginal infrastructure, the everyday challenges of living in a war-torn third-world country, and adventures in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Mozambique and Ethiopia.
