A teacher and an artist

A special man who has overcome all the odds in life

"Once a talent is used, it will grow and prosper. It will break the boundaries of hesitation and uncertainty; confidence will flow on and on."


What lies ahead for Thailand's foreign teachers?

David

Is it ever likely that foreign English teachers will be sincerely welcomed into Thailand and compensated not only in a manner commensurate with our qualifications and expertise, but also in a context relative to the significant contributions we bring to Thailand and its people?


The joy and pain of teaching in Thailand

A teacher looks back over her ten years in Thailand

I'm celebrating my 10th year in Thailand as an ESL Teacher. Working in a foreign land hasn't been easy. It took me years and a lot of patience and hard work to get settled, not to mention the ocean of tears and heartbreaking homesickness.


Qualified teachers vs unqualified teachers

NES Teacher

At the risk of adding fuel to the fire for those that like to shoot down the Filipinos (or other NNES) teaching staff - be careful


Wages and discrimination

pinoyguy

Here's a fact, almost anywhere in the world you will find a Filipino worker. There are 2.2 million Filipinos around the world working in various occupations, and why? That's because we can read, write, speak or even sing better in the English language


Filipino teachers and salaries

Bill

It seems the teacher salaries are actually going down, and it's work ethics and attitudes such as that which contribute to it.


Education in The Philippines

george graham

A quick google of world/asian/asean rankings will show that the education system of the Philippines is regularly placed below that of Thailand


Filipino teachers are underpaid

Mike

I have and will argue until the end of time that most Filipino teachers are under-paid.


Filipino teachers are worth more

Pinoyguy

If we Filipinos continue to take on these jobs with low salaries, without even bothering to haggle for an increase, we are making the Filipino teacher's value in this country lower.
