A friend of mine told me that there is a great opportunity for Filipino teachers in Thailand right now. Part of me wants to encourage friends and relatives to apply, and part of me wants to cry out for them to stay. But then, whatever I do, I feel it will not be fair for the motherland, as teachers will now be going out of the country and leave behind a great number of students who may need the said teachers. On the other hand, I feel it is quite unfair too if I wouldn’t tell them about this opportunity as there are less opportunities here for teachers. Even if there is a great number of teachers that the schools will need, the chances of getting employed for many is quite slim because of politicking and a really bad system. Sometimes too, one will need to wait till someone dies or gets pregnant just to be able to have an entry to the public school. While some private schools pay less than how much a teacher may need to sustain the family economically. And if ever, they get hired, the urge to earn more or be some place else will dominate them for greener pastures. That is quite a sad reality. But it is the reality.
Anyway, do leave me a comment if you wish to apply. I have three email addresses here that you may send your credentials to. Good luck..
