Job: High School (Grades 7 – 12) Librarian

12/28/15 –  High School (Grades 7 – 12) Librarian
Queen’s College, Nassau, Bahamas

Sarah P’s comments:  The Bahamas is one of those places that sounds like paradise but where the reality is somewhat different.  Both school and college reviews state both a high cost of living and crime rate.  Pluses are nice people, a balmy climate, and good beaches.  It could be a good place to go to break into the international market.  Read the reviews on International Schools Review before applying.
