Lying former director - shut out of Search

Hello All, Our first international job landed us working for a terrible director and the relationship between us ended badly (as in we really did not like each other). When we tried to sign up with Search she outright lied about us, saying something to the extent that we were let go before the end o...

Re: Turkey- a new dawn

If you are a single person and not easily made nervous, then perhaps you can handle being here. I have lived/taught in Istanbul through the events of the past year.

Re: Lying, unstable directors...

Wayfarer, I am not sure what is happening at JIS. My guess is that they have been busy putting together materials to gain the new type of accreditation required in order to continue operating.
