Re: Current 2019 list of countries with best savings potenti

It's true that schools in Latin America don't have savings potentials on the same level as the best of Saudi Arabia or China, but the Dominican Republic and Peru both have good schools with a decent savings potential. I have a friend in the Dominican Republic who is saving 25K/year.

Re: Creating fake references

If you just want to work in a place for less than two years, try negotiating that in the contract. I know there are some schools that start with just one year contracts anyway. Even if you feel like admin are lazy and don't deserve a teacher who completes a contract, the children do.

Re: Last straws

Broken promises over pay, professional development, and teaching assignments had made me think about leaving from the moment I arrived. The last straw, though, was the "resignation letters." When the school fired my friends, it used threats and manipulation to extract "resignation letters." Thus the...
