Learning Seed School in Miaoli county is coming around in a good way.
I had the chance to read though what Pubba wrote back in 2010 about him being abruptly fired and believe every word of it. The schools track record with hiring and firing is not great at all and the boss who runs the show does not speak a word of English and is pretty confused on the basics of what makes a school work and thrive (ie, not ruling the Taiwanese staff with an iron fist and showing up in her Mercedes every other week). However, with all that said, my fiancé and I signed on initially at Learning Seed for a six month stint and stayed for two years and we were not the exception either, several of the other teachers at the school signees milti-year extensions as we were leaving the school. The school is gorgeous with a sister campus in the technology park of Zhunan simply exploding in recent years, the local staff is incredibly hard working and the kids were always great. Sure there were parents wondering why their 3 year old wasn't fluent after a month in "immersion", but nothing out of the ordinary. Our days were long: from 0730 - 1830, but we never were required to work weekends or special holidays. We were paid promptly every month and negotiated salary increases a couple times. The school (owner) will take a yard if you give them an inch at times but if you're willing to stand your ground and keep disputes objective then there won't be problems. Overall, the school is great and the staff is FANTASTIC. The owner can be touch and go but is easily manageable.
Just wants sto give the good and the bad. PM me or reply if anybody has any comments or questions. No trolls please.
Oh, and we left the school to return to the states to get our masters. No shady business.
