Teaching license waivers

Teaching license waivers

Dear Ajarns, I made the mistake of working for an agency after many years of avoiding them. As they moved me from school to school I did not realise they were burning up my waivers as they did so.

An international school contacted me about a position that had opened up (I was on file with them) and I jumped at the chance. Whilst processing my work permit for the new job, the Thai MoE said I had been at three schools in a year and they were refusing me a permit. I (and my two children) were dismissed without compensation the same week and before the end of the month.

Does this mean I can never teach in a school again, or is there a time period which must pass before I can try again and hopefully get my license then?

Sincerely yours.

Ajarn D.
