I've recently moved to Hawaii with my family from Taiwan,
where I lived for more than a decade. In the year prior
to our move, I often logged on to the Hawaii chatboard in
order to get some practical advice as well as general
impressions of the area of the U.S. I was planning to move
back to. As it seems that people interested in moving to

I am writing to try to satisfy their curiosity on certain
points and to give them a newcomer's set of impressions on

First, I'd like to comment on the cost of living here,
about which you read a lot of negative commentary. My

Donna I'm a Dept of Defense Schools teacher living in Germany. My husband recently accepted a job in Honolulu, and I'm looking at my job options so I can follow him. I have a great job here, and I hate to leave if I'm going to have a hard time finding a job there. How difficult is it for a kindergarten teacher to get a teaching position? I've been teachi...See More
