Teaching after departure is annouced

I'm leaving the school that I'm at. I wanted to leave at end of academic year in June but the HOS decided a December departure is better. Everything has been more or less worked out. However two weeks ago, the HOS called a staff meeting to annouce my departure, of course all the student then knew, w...

Re: Is Search still worth it?

Search has a great data base for sure but its more than that; the IS recruiters seem to trust Search candidates more than Schrolle candidates for example. Being registered on Search is definitely worth the money but I'm not so sure about the fairs. I went to a UNI fair once and hated it and that was...

Re: Is Search still worth it?

I think Search is worth it. I've always gotten good jobs with them and I've never even had to attend a fair. I just rely on their data base.

Re: Best course of action

@psyguy I generally have a lot of time for psyguy because his feedback has actually been very helpful for interviews over the years. He does tend to pass over information though. For example, I did say that the reference from my HOS was good enough for an international school in Beijing to make an o...

Re: Teaching International Schools in China

Why not try a bilingual boarding school. The money is excellent and the ones that I have worked at had Chinese teachers. In fact, I was at a school in Sichuan and the Head of Math was Chinese and the most highly regarded teacher in the department; also in science there were Chinese teachers in physi...

Best course of action

So this job isn't working out, which is kind of heart breaking because I was really looking forward to it and I relocated the whole family but it isn't working out. I talked to my principal about it and we agreed on an end of academic year departure but my headmaster is considering an end of semeste...

Re: Life in Armania

Anyway the job fell through.
What I meant was are they well behaved or hard to manage; are they hard working students or lazy; things like that.

Re: Search Associates Agreement

After your contract ends, you have to reapply to get reactivated and start searching again.
