Hey everyone. Just wanted to pop in here with a quick question for you all.
I have been having issues with the schools I’ve been working for since the beginning of the new term. To me it seems that even as a foreign teacher, we’re expected to conform to their bullsh*t standards and methods for teaching (IMO). If we don’t, then we are bombarded with complaints and the famous Taiwanese way of doleing (sp?) out backhanded BS.
Anyways, my problems are that I’m a very outspoken person, and I firmly belive in my methods of teaching (which were developed at one of the finest Liberal Arts schools in the U.S.). I have refused time and again to give in to the pressure of the schools to teach a certain way, and have voiced my displeasure of being pressured to do so. So, given my strong opinions and refusal to change the methods which I, and others, agree are quite alright…these schools have begun to cut hours.
Bottom line…has anyone else experienced this same kind of thing when you didn’t just go along with what a school wants, like some mindless sheep out to pasture? I really hope I’m not alone on this.
