Joe

Joe is from America and lives in Bangkok. He has taught in Thailand for three years and prefers teaching third grade and above.

Q1. How long have you been teaching in Thailand?

3 years

Q2. What age group do you prefer teaching and why?

Third grade and up.

Q3. What is the best thing about living and working in Thailand in your opinion?

The weather and laid-back atmosphere.

Q4. If you had to move to teach English somewhere else, which country would be next on your list and why?

Korea or Taiwan. I love the culture and food.

Q5. Of all the places you have travelled to in Thailand, which is your favourite and why?

Buriram, because life is easy and my lady's mom is a great cook.

Q6. How do you see Thailand's TEFL landscape changing in the next five or ten years?

I see the seeming mistrust between Thai teachers and foreign teachers becoming less of a problem.

Q7. Why do you think Thailand is still a big draw for many TEFLers?

The weather and lifestyle here is great.

Q8. Have you taught in any other countries? How do they compare to Thailand?

Yes. I was a teacher in America for ten years. Discipline and structure are greatly lacking compared to America.

Q9. What advice would you give to a new teacher thinking of embarking on a teaching career in Thailand?

Don't do it for the money and don't do it for a work permit. Do it because you love Thailand and teaching.

Q10. You are looking for a new teaching job at the moment. How can potential employers contact you?

Yes, I am. They can call me at 0633137064 or email me at williamkellett@naver.com.
