Thanks for the input guys. My husband is in the Navy. We have had the idea of moving back to Australia for a long time, so it isn't only this situation that has influenced our decisions. Anyway, I think I have found a one year working visa that I can apply for. I am just young enough to apply and it means I can come over for a year and give us some time together to work things out. I can work for 2, 3 month periods, although not really expecting that I will be able to find anything. What Marilyn has written though, basically just reaffirms what I had already researched. I had contacted DODEA and found out that as an Australian, I can't teach or work on the Base (other than the jobs you mentioned, Marilyn). Working at an International School doesn't seem like an option either, as I wouldn't have the correct visa. Does anybody know if it would be the same situation at the Montessori School?
Marilyn, how long will you stay for? I know it must have been difficult to give up, or at least put on hold, your career. I have been looking at a few things, and whilst I am there, volunteering seems like a good options. I am use to working full time and worried that I would get bored otherwise.
Thanks for everybody else's suggestions. I would get my husband to have a look at this forum. The are some things that he will understand better than I can.
