You just thought you were signing up for a year of teaching abroad. Little did you realise that you were going to get the equivalent of an iron man suit thrown in for free. Remember to use your newfound powers for good, not evil…
Sometimes being a TEFL teacher sucks. Times when you've got an incredible workload, endless admin, and no energy.
Sometimes though, you're not tired because of the amount of work, but the kind of work you're doing. You're stuck in a rut, repeating yourself, and can't get the impetus to kick yourself out of it.
You don’t bother to get to know the new teacher (or even learn their name) until they’ve worked at least three months (or pass probation, whichever is later)…
