Is English your first language?
Anything Else?
5-day week, but as it’s a private school there are usually no weekends off, but holiday can be booked for weekends. 2-Consecutive days off in the week and, unless teaching CLT, no work in the daytime as it’s evenings and weekends children’s teaching. For over a year there have been no forced office hours, though this is in the contract. While the teachers are getting their “office” work done in their own time, it seems the school is happy to let it go. The teacher’s are! Not sure how this stacks up, but it seems most people at my branch are happy. Summer and Winter vacation is 6-days a week/27 hours, but it seems to fly by and we get free coke! (No, the regular soda drink!)
