Stay away from the top knot

When a young teacher fears students have lost his respect

As is in the business of providing advice to ESL teachers, I have a new warning when it comes to hair choices. Stay away from the top knot!

Teacher dress codes


Don't waste your money buying pants. Maybe the school you work at will not be as strict with this policy, but unless you have overwhelming feelings about this topic, buy skirts and dresses to be on the safe side.

Looking good in the classroom

What's the ideal hairstyle for a female foreign teacher?

I am coming to Thailand at the end of the year and would be grateful if you could advise me as to what's appropriate and inappropriate in terms of women's hairstyles (in relation to teaching posts).
