Can you help out and offer some advice to this teacher?
I have been in Thailand for many years and I used to teach without a degree. Over the years I worked in a variety of schools and universities. I now find myself about to finish a postgraduate degree in education but the path ahead is far from clear.
What can you do about it if you feel you're stuck in a 'teaching rut'?
So many people complain about conditions, wages and opportunities but do nothing to address these things. Some TEFL teachers seem to think this isn’t an industry or a “real” job so other aspects such as annual reviews and training aren’t relevant.
The positives and the negatives of each
Do you want to continue working in TEFL or become a licensed teacher in your home country and go for the higher-paying international school jobs. It's a big decision to make!
