Seems many schools and agencies have a good thing going. I want to ask or present a problem for potential teachers. Most countries do not offer retirement until 65 or so in age. If a teacher is like me they are getting close but have to work. I need three more years to retirement.
I have to work and with all these age restrictions it is hard to remain employed as the schools let you go for younger teachers or agencies simply won't accept you. I have all my money invested in a house and my 6 children (some adopted). So if I find a job that you offer and I am really interested in, I look down and see not over 40. This is very disheartening.
With all the jobs going vacant now, one would assume this would change. Just to let you know I am certified and licensed in the US and I have a Thai Teacher's License. I have degrees in Education with specialization in Elementary grades 1 through 8, with English and Reading as my specialty subjects but I can teach all subjects. My experiences cover over 30 years of teaching. Which brings us down to the issue. I am not the greatest teacher in the world but I do know what I am doing in the classroom.
Please, consider the older teachers. We are close to having all we work for only to be shut out and living hand to mouth on today's wages. We can lose it all on just this one fine point of age discrimination.
Just getting by
