Re: How long must one wait for review to be posted?

Thanks. Actually I wonder if a system could be created where you can check if it has been accepted or not and why but do this all anonymously. No big deal but it could reduce the amount of work for people writing and also checking submissions.

How long must one wait for review to be posted?

I know some reviews are not posted so people rewrite and resubmit them. I'm wondering how long should one wait after submitting to know it has been refused and so write a new review and submit it?

Re: Norwegian salaries? Anyone out there teaching in Norway?

Not sure I understood you Psyguy.
I'm also wondering if state school teachers receive a higher salary than international school teachers. If so, I'm wondering if a plan to try to get work myself into a state school after a few years would be a worthwhile goal.

Re: Norwegian salaries? Anyone out there teaching in Norway?

Thanks Sid.
A retired teacher friend of mine gives talks at Norwegian schools annually. He said young teachers there were all driving top of the line Tesla's. But I am interested in pensions over salaries and hoping in my early 50s it's not too late to build something in Norway.
Stay healthy!

Norwegian salaries? Anyone out there teaching in Norway?

I have 15 years classroom experience and a masters of education. I was quoted 50,000 Euros as a salary. That seems low and wondering if there was a mistake as Norwegian teachers are apparently paid a good salary. Does anyone have any info on this?

Re: Director Invited me Out - Help!

I think the director is also taking a lot of risk in this situation. If things don't go well for the teacher he's dating he might expect a bad review on ISR. And, he'll have to be wary of all he says to her while dating as it could later be used against him. Also, some staff might be bitter and woul...

Re: transferring US/QTS to Canada

Here's a tip. Whichever province you go to ask the College of Teachers in that province for the document the schools you worked out can fill stating you time teaching there. I'd get going on that asap. You can have those years credited to raise you on the pay grid. I did that and it made a differenc...

PYP schools where math taught by a different teacher?

I enjoy teaching PYP Units of Inquiry and ELA but I do not enjoy teaching math as much. Does anyone know of countries or schools where there is one teacher teaching the math and another teaching the other areas of study to PYP students. I did work at one school which functioned like this in Indonesi...

Re: IB 'Feedback and Complaints' and 'Whistleblowing Policy'

I read their whistleblowing policy. It states "This policy applies to disclosures relating to improper practices occurring within the IB or an IB World School". I guess there may have been problems in the IB itself. And the complaints procedure is stated to be used for IB courses and other products....

Recruiters wary of teachers with admin aspirations?

What are the chances recruiters might be concerned someone applying for a teaching position is studying or getting certified to become a principal? Might they be concerned the teacher might meddle with their decisions, undermine their authority, be interested in taking their job at some point? I'm w...
