Sarah P’s comments:  Fall is the beginning of the recruiting season for international school librarians.  I post what I consider the most worthy positions (and sometimes the notorious as a warning) however if you are interested in school positions I advise you to join TIE (The International Educator) to see the whole list of what is available.  Note: this position has a potential mid-year start date so if you can be available then you might have a jump on the competition.
