Horses for courses

Postbox letter from Martin Foot

I'm not really sure how much a highly professional teacher can help in your average Thai school. Even as a hypothetical it doesn't seem to be in any way plausible.


Our story

Two teachers in love and planning their life together in Thailand

Suffering or no suffering, this time we are doing it. We are Thailand bound and excited, if somewhat distracted for the time being. Sun, smiles, a detachment from most of what and who we know. New friends, new haunts and new experiences. A different perspective on life. Success or failure, this foray into the relative unknown will shape the rest of our lives.

I was looking for a job and then I found a job

I was refused a place at the two major international school recruitment fairs and turned down by every international school I applied to. Then one fine morning last week, I received an email from a private Thai EP school that I had applied to way back at the start of my job search, offering me an interview.

Postbox letter from Wendy Williams
