Greetings, I have been reading through all the threads and doing some quick searches to get some basic questions answered so I can make a better, more informed decision for my family. However, it's a bit overwhelming at times and some of the answers are older so I'd like to get some insight from some old hands if you don't mind entertaining a long post. Background: I'm a Canadian who has worked overseas in international school settings as well as school boards in Canada. I don't have the teaching certification for my home province for anything beyond Early Childhood Education. I have a 3 year diploma in Child and Youth studies--while considered a profession it is not a degree per say. With that said I plan to work towards my Bachelor of Ed from the OpenUniversity of Australia program(flexibility and state certified without brick and mortar school restrictions). I'm currently in Ontario working as a special ed assistant/ECE for a school board. However, I am missing my overseas life(lived and worked in Shanghai for 5 years at top international school) and so my family and I are looking to make move back overseas. Also, my husband is a marketing/communications consultant so does a lot of online work so he is able to move to any country I want to as long as it has strong internet connection. Phew--long story I know but gives context to the following questions I guess. 1. I have been offered a job with a school in Phnom Penh but I am hesitant to take it because of the lack of health care services for my young children(5 year old and 4 month old). I know that I won't really be able to work full time in an international school setting without the degree in Thailand but what are my chances of doing short term supply contracts(mat leave, sick leave) with schools in Thailand? 2. What kind of permit would I need if I was just to do short term contracts or supply work on demand?? Doing the visa run is fine as we would have the flexibility but if I can avoid doing that then that would make life easier. 3. With my husband doing most of his work online and billing to customers in their home country would a business visa be more advisable or just stick with tourist visa with border runs?? 4. Homeschooling laws--when I'm not working or if I am and my husband is on daddy duty--what are the laws around homeschooling (no we're not those crazy christian homeschoolers--more Reggio/unschooling philosophy). 5. Finally--any thoughts on which city is more kid friendly--Chiang Mai or Bangkok---We've been to Bangkok but pre-baby so different perspective I suppose. Thanks in advance for the answers--truly appreciate it.
