My name is Keith Downing and I am scheduled to start teaching in Shanghai at the end of November. I believe my date will be pushed back as the document authentication took longer than originally expected. I am excited to continue this process now that I have all of my documents uploaded and authenticated. Over the last few weeks I reviewed many other blogs looking for insights on the obstacles others have faced while completing the tasks set by EF. I really enjoyed reading the other blogs, but I was unable to find any blogs about married teachers moving abroad. I believe this is the biggest difference between my experience and the majority of teachers represented on this site. I am bringing my wife to Shanghai with me for the adventure. We have both dreamed of traveling across Asia and I believe the opportunity EF provides will be the key to fulfilling our dreams. As we move forward and await our arrival in Shanghai I will continue to be active on this site. Please feel free to offer any insight you might have on our Shanghai transition. I look forward to getting to know my peers through this site as we prepare for departure.
