Calculus in the Congo, Book 2: My Adventures While Teaching and Traveling on the African Continent (Unabridged)
I type “International Teaching Jobs” on the Google search line and find myself looking at a long list of teaching jobs all over the world. “Here’s a job in the Congo”, I tell my wife, Chantal. “Africa!?” she asks with obvious surprise in her voice. “Yeah…really. They want a calculus teacher!” I respond. “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 second, third and fourth years of these adventures, including the day-to-day life of a teacher at The American School of Kinshasa from 2007-2009 who deals with a marginal infrastructure while facing the everyday challenges of living in a war-torn third-world country, and has some great adventures in South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Uganda and Zanzibar.
