Jono Blaze

About five years ago - maybe more - we featured a teacher called Jono Blaze in an article on ajarn.com. Jono's was the ultimate teacher done good story. He gave up the teaching and opened Momma's, his very own British restaurant in Sukhumwit Soi 23. Then after rave reviews from ex-pats, the restaurant literally disappeared. The question on everyone's lips - whatever happened to Jono? Well, the man's back!


Glenn Van Der Heyden

Some teachers luck out in Thailand and find something that they truly enjoy doing. But you have to admit - few things would beat becoming the coach of Thailand's national ice hockey team!


Mark Reynolds

It's fair to say that Mark's Thailand TEFL career was nothing out of the ordinary, but you might say that he knew just when to quit, and how to plan for the future.


James Parsons

James Parsons has spent much of his teaching career hopping between Korea and Thailand. He's dabbled in Thailand's property market and he's done more visa runs than you've had hot dinners.


Mike Thompson

Mike Thompson is an Asian American from California. He admits that his Asian appearance put many employers off when he started looking for teaching work in Thailand, but slowly he's turned things around. It hasn't been easy though.


Cat and Fernanda

When I first considered teaching English abroad, I bought myself a book called “Teach English Around the World’. It promised experiences beyond my wildest dreams and while the sound of teaching in exotic locations was undoubtedly appealing, Thailand was as far as I got. It’s therefore a great pleasure to talk to not one, but two globetrotters who have literally ‘taught English around the world’. Step forward Catriona and Fernanda - two fine ladies, both working for the British Council in Bangkok. It’s ajarn com’s first ‘double interview’ folks.


Court Merrigan

Court has taught English in Thailand for five years. He's a prolific writer of articles and short stories and an ardent supporter of something called Creative Commons. He's also hopefully about to return to the USA with his good lady wife. Let's delve a little deeper.


Donald Patnaude

A familiar path that many teachers tread in Thailand is to start at the '200 baht an hour' language schools and work their way up. Eventually you might even be lucky enough to open your own language school. Donald Patnaude is one such man.


Danny Walton

You don't come across many people who have held a DOS (Director of Studies) position for more than two or three years, but Anthony clocked up a whopping eight years in Bangkok as a language school hirer and firer. Worth a chat methinks.


Brian Hodge

Brian Hodge from New Zealand has only been in Thailand for a couple of years but he's already racked up an impressive list of employers including an orphanage, a temple school and a government university. Let's find out how the different teaching environments compare.
