September again and as usual time for teachers to see what they are going to do for the next year!
As usual, some of us have been employed full time at a state school with the price of relocation, some of us are waiting to work for a few hours at a state school ( everybody admits that the pay and the conditions are awful and sometimes they have to pay on their own for the fares to get there, but they do it anyway, in order to get the desirable "points")
And the rest of us are trying to find a part-time-job at a private language school. And if you are young, you have many prospects to find something, if you're not so young, like me, then you end up home with empty hands and a whole lot free time!!!
Experienced teachers are not wanted anymore because of the "high" pay!!!
I have been in various job interviews lately... one school owner told me that I am too old to be enthusiastic with small children (I am 37 btw) and another one told me that because I am 37 and the school is a bit far from my home she didn't want to hire me! This means that if I were younger and the school was still far, she would hire me? This is ridiculous!!!
Anyway... I wish everybody, my colleagues, my private students and their parents a great school year!!!
