    I have been here since 2001 from South Africa.. had to go back in 2004 because the visa expired, and came back in 2005. I taught at the same school from 2001 until this past school year. It's time to work on the greencard - however the school system was not prepared to sponsor it because of budget cuts.

    I, thankfully, got a job at a private Christian school and they have been amazing! I haven't officially started working yet, but they have done everything in their power to help get my visa transferred to them.

    I got notification today that the visa was approved!!! :lol: So excited and feeling so blessed. Definitely a God-thing!

    Now.... for the greencard :D

    Congrats! I've had many friends from NZ, Australia, Bahamas, SA, etc who have had to go through the whole process. I can somewhat understand what an amazing accomplishment that is.
    Good luck on the greencard!
