      Pretty Terrible for an International School

      Pros

      You are provided with lunch daily

      Cons

      Working on Saturdays and holidays that create weeks with only a day or two off, very little help getting settled, student body is apathetic and always so sleepy, you are micromanaged, racist students, squat toilets, the students run the school, textbooks have redacted sections because this isn't a true international school.

      A Good Start

      Pros

      - Excellent salary and benefits - You get your own classroom and can set your own rules/plans - Collaborative teaching is encouraged and very helpful - Great teaching staff- lots of people were both friends and colleagues! - Students are sweet and cute and kind! Our interactions with parents were great as well. - There is a ton of technology! Every classroom in China must have an interactive white board, projector, speakers. As teachers we were encouraged to use classroom apps, reading software and iPEVO document readers. It was awesome! -This is a new school so there is a lot changing. This is mostly good but can be alarming, challenging and bad (when the school makes drastic change)

      Cons

      - Huaqiao Economic Development Zone is a tiny (relatively) town that does not boast a lot of amenities. It is 2 hours away from Shanghai which is good, but at a distance that is not always convenient. -Lots of PD that is not relevant. Each department is required to have a certain amount of hours of PD which leads to teachers being required to sit at meetings that are not relevant or helpful. -In Asia there can be a lot of racism/bigotry. Teachers from the West were treated better than those from Taiwan, and those from China. Black Americans were treated differently than white Americans. Its not good, but I know this happens in Asia. - Getting resources for projects that we were required to plan each semester was like pulling teeth! If you want us to produce top level projects to show parents and potential families, help us out with things like colored paper, glitter etc.

      Pros

      Elementary is a great place to be if you are really interested in growing as a teacher. I saw lots of changes over the two year period I was there. Great support from staff. Great facilities at school.

      Cons

      The leave system is not great at all. You get extra days if you sign up for another year.
