Remember that trip to Nelson I was going to say more about?
I went to Nelson to meet with John Boyce, the principal of Garin College. He was a colleague and good friend of Christina West. She told him about me, my teaching, and how much I liked New Zealand. He showed me around Garin, we talked about teaching, education philosophy, and a little bit of philosophy in general. A couple of weeks later Garin College offered me a full-time, permanent position.
It didn't take much thinking from any of us. In early December Claire, Molly, Oliver and I received our passports with a New Zealand Permanent Residency Visa sticker. We are moving permanently to New Zealand. It seems it was always inevitable. Does that make me KiwiHoosier now?
