Hello Board. I am a teacher for the blind and visually impaired, my husband is a network security eng. We are wanting to move to Bonaire and work. Does anyone know if there is a need for specialized teachers and Information Technologist? We have stayed in Aruba for a month at a time and visited Bonaire. We fell in love with Bonaire and how untouched the Island is along with the wonderful people. Aruba also is a wonderful place and we have wonderful friends from the Island. Please let me know there is anyone I could contact about my and my husbands interest.

If you speak Dutch or Papiamento you may have a good shot. In the past 23 years I have worked with the deaf (used to know ASL pretty well), blind, mentally retarded population, was a school counselor for 16 years have two advanced degrees in counseling etc..and cannot work here as I do not speak Dutch at all and do not speak Papiamento well enough. Good luck.

Teachers here must speak Dutch and papiamentu with Spanish and English as a 3rd and 4th Language. I know of only 1 US teacher here in the past 22 years. As for Radio, 99% of broadcasts are in Papiamentu, Dutch or Spanish. That does not mean you would not find a job here but it may be difficlt if you do not carry a Dutch EC passport.

Theresa, someone posted this on another thread. You can look up information on the property by going to www.infobonaire.com and click under accommodations. I have no idea how big the places are. By Jennifer Dufour (New BonaireTalk Poster - Post #5) on Monday, August 7, 2006 - 5:23 pm:

I would jump at the chance to teach in Bonaire. Dutch father...I speak English and Spanish and a bit of Papiamento. I'm a female certified diver who has taught just about everything...from third grade to technology to gifted and talented to special education...and been in administration. Any real solid place to look...or I'm barking up an empty tree?

Depending on the grade level, you would have to be fluent in Papiamentu for lower or Dutch for upper.
