I have taken a position as an Environmental Education instructor on Jekyll Island. It's a Coastal Barrier Island about 12 hrs from here and to those who know how I feel about Assateague it's an awesome opportunity to live and work in a similar situation. It seems like it's going to be a really cool place and I am looking forward to being there. I'll be teaching EE to mostly 4th-8th graders with some other age groups thrown in from time to time. The classes are mainly outdoor classes on the geography, flora, fauna, and natural processes of the island as well as current environmental issues. They provide me room and board with a nice salary so I am well compensated. I leave on October 30th to start so it's not to long now.
Unfortunately, they don't allow pets and I am not sure what I am going to do with my cat while I am gone. He is not making it any easier by being more cute and clinging than usual. Hopefully my brother will take him again although he already has a cat so I am not sure about that option either.
