Re: Year off?

Thanks for the advice. I've always heard mix things about taking a year off but your right I am sure the word pandemic will be a pretty easy thing to say and not worry about follow up questions. I am going to get a letter from the school that no longer needs my services saying I was offered the job ...

Year off?

Anybody taking the year off? I got locked out of China in February and my new schools numbers dropped so I am not needed. Now it's very late and I am financially set to take a year off. Anyone see a downside to this? I'm sure the market is not going to be booming next year but the jobs on Search and...

Re: Let the Bloodbath Begin.....

My current school (located in China) just reopened for grades 4-12 to make the Chinese parents happy. They are running a skeleton crew since most of us are out of country. The middle school is made of 9 foreign teachers with only 2 currently working at the school. The rest of us are running "hybrid ...

Re: Reopening

My school in China is reopening for grades 9 and 12. I am not in country but they sent out a video to all high school students on the requirements and it looks like a prison. I would not want my kid going back and do not understand the value of going back compared to online. Also, since 1/2 of our s...

Re: Situation in China

Working in China I have the exact same questions. We have been able to refund our tickets going back to China but have still had problems with connections due to being in China in the past 14 days. Most of the schools have set up online learning to a degree so I assume we will be getting paid for at...

Re: Situation in China

My school keeps telling me to report the 10th so I can do my 14 day quarantine just incase we go back the 24th. I have thought about it and just can't do it. I have signed a contract for next year outside of China and might just step down before I report. I am using the flights as an excuse but they...
