Re: Avoid Swiss boarding schools

I heard a similar story about a teacher having to clean up vomit regularly but this was at the most expensive of all of the Swiss boarding schools. It might be the same school as none of these boarding schools come close to being top tier.

Re: Avoid Swiss boarding schools

Heliotrope & secondplace, there is no point trying to argue with Psyguy. He has his own truth and will never admit he is wrong. He will try to convince you he knows better than those who work or have worked at Swiss boarding schools themselves. He is a troll.

Re: How long is your commute?

Do not settle for a house that far away just because it is offered to you on a silver platter.
If you do some digging you could find a house just as nice a lot closer. Putting in some extra work will pay off.

Re: How long is your commute?

Last month I moved to a house closer to my school because I don't want to waste time commuting.

Re: What to do after PGCEi being useless?

Your ethnicity does diminish your chances but you can still get to where you want to go. It does mean the road to get there will be longer. The better schools are usually the ones that will look less at skin color but unfortunately to be considered there you first experience at the the lower tier sc...

Re: PE Teachers and schools that only locally hire

I have not worked at a school with a local PE teacher yet but I do notice that PE teachers will stay at the same school longer than other teachers.

Re: 32K - Average Salary for International Teachers?

Every time Psyguy refuses to link to a source I assume he doesn't have any and he just made it all up.
The "Do your own research" is him trying to get away with not having a source.

Re: Making decisions on schools based on Covid?

I always heard ISM was a dream school but it seems they are no more. Sad.
Seems the list of dream schools is getting shorter and shorter.

Re: Physics or Middle School Science? Ranking?

Yes, Computer Science and HL Maths at my school. If you have experience teaching both plus IB experience than you will have an easy time recruiting.

Re: 32K - Average Salary for International Teachers?

<t>I have heard a number of $39,000 but that seems low seeing the Search Associates averages of $41,700 and $48,700. <br/> If you count all schools that label themselves as international the number might go down but I would only count accredited schools where you need to be a licensed teacher from a...
