What happens if your accused of reviewing your school?

So, what happens? Anyone ever been accused, suspected, or worse caught? Was there retribution or was it your death sentence? I'm hearing stories! 8)

Silly Rabbit, tricks are for kids.

That's silly. Why ask for letters, when there should be accountability. Heads, principals, and other administrators with questionable past, seem to have no problems quitting, getting fired, or even kicked out of Dodge and popping out all squeaky clean in a new post. While on the other hand teachers ...

Standing up without an Agenda?

Standing up for ourselves comes in many shades of grey. I have seen very few people who stand right up and say, no, "I'm mad as hell and I won't take it anymore". And, the ones who did, mysteriously disappeared, or were shown the way out. All this while the others, who were in the shadows,...

Truth Hurts

Sorry, folks this site (sight) is a long time coming. I am envious of you who have had great times in great places. Me too, but not always in the work place. It's sad, and the system needs some policing, so why not, done by teachers. If a director is named, so be it. They have minds too, and if foul...

Dime a Dozen!

One thing seems obvious, there is no shortage of teachers willing to sign on the dotted line for an opportunity to work abroad, even if the sign said "we'll treat you like crap", they would still sign on. "Post it and they will come" should be the motto. Just the opportunity to b...

Why is the wheel re/invented again and again?...

Why is it so many schools seem to have to start over? I have been to a few schools and every one is either re/writing the curriculum or reinventing the wheel some way or another. Is there simply a school out there that is functioning just fine, with a staff coming in and doing their jobs well, witho...

Long time coming

I feel this has been a long time coming. Over the years I have listened to so many gripes and complaints and praises too. The gripes concern me the most. My first hand experience has not always shown the brightest light on International School teaching. Often, I have seen personal agendas, greed, an...
