Expat Experience: Steven LePoidevin, Wuhan

Post Posted: Tue May 06, 2014 6:02 pm

My name is Steven LePoidevin. I'm a retired mathematics and chemistry teacher currently living in Chiangmai, Thailand, with my wife, Nancy.

We moved from a small town in rural Canada, to Wuhan, China in 2008. It was a big jump to go from a town with a population of five thousand to a megalopolis of over ten million! After a long teaching career in Canada, I had been considering the idea of teaching abroad for a few years before I retired.

I had spent a year working in Scotland a decade earlier and knew that this would probably be my last chance to work overseas again. Teaching abroad had been a great experience and seemed like it would be a fun way to end my successful career.

I had put out several feelers and been accepted to a large recruitment fair by the Council of International Schools that was to take place the end of February, 2008 in Seattle. This probably would have resulted in a position at one of their member schools somewhere in the world. However, before I had a chance to find out, I received a phone call from a headhunter for a large international school in China.
