Hello experienced expats, I'm an American teacher with 6 years of experience teaching intermediate English/LanguageArts, and I have a B.Ed and an M.Ed. Last summer, I was offered 13k AED to teach at a tough school in Dubai. They informed me that schools in Dubai do not pay much more regardless of experience or degrees. I declined the position because I truly I didn't think it was enough. My question, what is an acceptable range of compensation (AED) based on my education and experience. I don't want to low ball myself, but neither seem arrogant. Additionally, I have an upcoming interview in China, so this question applies to CYN as well.
