    "13 hour days and 6 day weeks exist" - wow! don't tell the dumbell he'll have a heart attack! That's definitely not allowed in international education!

    Is that in a leadership role or as a teacher? We are also looking into KL, however are also currently in Abu Dhabi where the salaries are relatively high. Thanks!

    That salary is for a teacher, but they do demand very long hours on return!

    That's what I thought myself, but private international schools make up their own rules. That is why I suggest anyone looking for an international role does very thorough research on the schools they apply to.

    pink reindeer another reincarnation, how does he keep it up, why is he allowed to keep it up, why is he doing it? Does he think people listen to his advice? Not that I really care just curious is all!

    I can't answer any of your questions, other than to hazard a guess that he is a bored individual. Someone once told me only boring people get bored....

    That's something I say. Was it me, I wonder?

    AD isn't all that bad. I agree that's its a marmite type of place, and rapidly losing it's appeal for me, but then again, isn't everywhere in the world like this?

    I guess.
    And it may be that I'm just having a bad experience so I can see the bad more clearly than the good. I try not to be so negative, but it can be hard. I enjoy the weekends, but weekdays pretty much suck! I live in a crappy area and it takes a bit of a taxi ride to get near any sort of fun action. Hard to juggle that as well as doing school work.

    This roseate reindeer has lasted more than a week! Impressive staying power.

    Hi, I am also considering a relocation to Malaysia. Although my deal breaker is if I can bring my 2 indoor cats with me... do you know of many people who transported pets with them?

    Hi, I'm a trainee teacher interested in doing my NQT abroad. What's your opinion about doing this? I've read the relevent thread. Thanks

    @Celltastic yes it is possible to take your cats to Malaysia but it will be expensive and you have to meet all sorts of vet criteria. A google will give you more info.

    Any thoughts/experience on schooling in Penang ??
  19. missbrody

    missbrody New commenter

    Neither mental nor desperate,thank you! Just told a whole pack of lies about the class sizes, how well resourced the department is, timetable content, need I say anymore?
    As an experienced IB and A level teacher of a shortage subject I am not desparate, in fact my problem now is deciding which of the hundreds of jobs advertised currently to apply for!

    Poor you missbrody. Nothing like being bedazzled by promises only to find they don't deliver anything at all.
