When I interviewed Joseph Christie a couple of weeks back I was surprised to find out that he is moving on from his current post as Tech Dir in Alexandria, Egypt to Dubai. Interestingly enough his replacement is pulling a double feat by first being new to the Tech Dir position, and secondly moving from the US for his first experience working abroad. I had to talk to him!
Fortunately he agreed!
Here is our conversation. We cover things such as how to prepare as you ready yourself and family for the move abroad. We also cover topics such as Tech Dir evaluations, software and tools assessment ideas and how to go about planting your feet as the Tech Dir in a school.
