First I am happy that I could make you happy. That is very important.
It's sad that you don't even know the school or me but already have a strong opinion about how exactly everything looks like, over there.
I would recommend to read the ad again, to all posters. Would be nice, I mean it.
-First it's a preschool, and it seems like so far the posters have not much experience with preschool environment and teaching, or may just be bashing.
-23 years of age is a requirement to apply for a work visa.
-professional behavior and work ethics have absolutely nothing to do with work experience or education level. One is gifted with professionalism or not [or trained at]. But we also give inexperienced but professional, skilled and gifted teachers a chance.
-"The Pay" you should maybe read the ad again. compare working hours/contact hours and pay. I think you misunderstood.
-Please if you know any preschool that pays more than 8000RMB/month for those working conditions, let me know I am interested. lol
8000RMB is more than a preschool educator gets in Europe.
-Usually professional development means consistent training 'AND' career chances.
Also I am not quite sure why more or less working hours equals no career chances or limited retirement happiness.
-The retirement plan, I have not met one person that used China for a retirement strategy. Unless you work for a foreign entity. Plus it's regulated by the government...work hard...climb up...more retirement funds. Same everywhere.
-I will not go into details about why the school chose those schedule but professional teachers and especially 'highly professional' ones will understand and appreciate it, a lot.
Plus we had a teacher who wanted more work, so he worked more hours and got more pay.
It's not that there isn't enough work.
-All preschool jobs are high stress environments and mentioning it in the ad, is better than teachers being surprised how exhausting it can be, working with preschool kids.
If I was looking for 'hardworking suckers to take advantage' of I would have written an ad looking for a professional sucker.
But no! I am in charge of the foreign staff, including Professional Development etc. and I am trying my best to be professional and demand professionalism, coz everything else can be achieved through PD.
So I am still looking for exactly the person I posted before "Highly Professional Teachers [Educators in some countries]".
Please before you are bashing my ad or the school please [sincerely], do some research on how preschools are internationally paid and structured.
You can P.M. me if you have questions.
You couldn't be more wrong.
As [so far] all the other posters....sadly!
I think you have a little calculation error there. A month has an average of 20-22working days, the pay is 8000RMB/month.
Please check again.
Look guys I am just trying to get good and professional staff and I am also known for trying hard to put my a** on the line to get what teachers deserve and protect them from all the chaos that schools in China can produce.
I chose to be honest rather than hand out fake promises.
So please if you have questions I am happy to answer them via P.M.
What you wrote is pretty much all wrong besides your personal perception and it's unfair.
Please, rather than just bashing, why don't you help me find a great teacher.
