    The salary goes up 1000 a year after the second year. You could quite easily double your salary with a few evening classes.

    There's purpose built science lab, maths lab, computer room, music room, library and meeting room. These are specifically for the use of the English program.

    Each teacher has their own desk, computer and printer in their classroom.

    There's a coffee room with free coffee, where teachers can sit and have chat when they have free time.

    Sounds too good to me after 2.5 years setting up an EP completely alone, having 3 more contact hours and 2 K less per month. Of course no Thai co- teacher.

    I never had a pay raise and keep all the machines I upgraded to W 10, running.

    Any other job next May can't be worse than the one I'm doing right now.

    The promised "experienced NES teachers" at my current school never made it to an interview. They just gave me another class which is insane.

    It's not just about a good teacher, the new teacher must also fit in the existing team.

    Good luck finding the right guy, I also do/did the hiring for them and my two former schools and know how difficult it is to find good teachers.

    We have a really good team of 11 foreign teachers in our program. A mix of nationalities and ages ranging from 30-50. There are approx 40 foreign teachers in the whole school. it’s pretty hard work but it is rewarding too, as I mentioned before, the private work is well paid and not in short supply, once you’ve settled in. We work hard but we have a good laugh too, everyone gets their job done, no one is over the top and we always find a special moment in the day to take the piss out of each other.

    It’s not really great timing but a recently hired teacher left over the October holidays and didn’t tell the school until yesterday, right after payday :hilarious

    Hopefully we’ll get someone decent who’ll stay long term. We’ve got a vested interest in finding someone because until the school appoints a new teacher, we’ll be picking up a few extra hours to cover the teaching load! :cursing

    Quite a few people in the program have put the word out already through various channels and the school want to hire ASAP, so speed is of the essence.

    I'll message you immediately, should a good guy I know well be interested. And I won't send you trash.

    I've got my own way to check people out and I think I'm pretty good in "reading people."

    Cheers-

    I hope you're getting paid for the extra hours, from the money the school is saving...

    Yes, we usually get paid an hourly rate for any hours we cover for long term sickness etc. hopefully they'll appoint someone quickly. I believe they're going to hire an agency teacher until the end of the year and then hire someone long term for the start of the next academic year.
