Came to Taipei under the belief I would only stay here a year to help family sort out some issues and took a job teaching at an American preschool during my sabbatical from the States. I signed a one year contract.
I’ve been with them since Chinese New Year and I have gotten really attached to the kids, the kids love me, and the parents love me too…BUT
I wasn’t actively searching for it, but an amazing job opportunity in Taipei in a different industry was offered to me. I made the very difficult choice of accepting it, and now I need to tell my school, the parents and the students I will be leaving after half a year. I don’t care about the money I will lose on the deposit. I don’t care if my bosses get mad at me. BUT-
Very concerned about how this will affect my kids. I am the first teacher some of these kids have ever had. We’ve come a long way from the first day of school, and 3-5 is such an impressionable age. Wondering how I can mitigate the damage and ease their transition to a new teacher.
Advice? I’d appreciate it. I really love the kids. :help:
