    Cons

    -Minimal training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Keep the perks & bonuses - they are a big draw for quality teachers
    -Don't be afraid to let teachers go who fail at their duties or disrupt the teacher community
    -Spend more on teaching resources & library books
    -Adopt the Dewey Decimal System to better sort library books and make books easily searchable

    Interview Details

    First, I went through a teaching placement program which then gave me the chance of teaching at two schools in Shanghai and I requested SHSID. After that, a Foreign Affairs manager Skype interviewed me and it was short and casual. She mostly did all the talking and asked me maybe two questions about why I wanted to teach in China and what is most important when teaching young kids. Overall, very easy.
