36,000 to finish by 11am sounds like a pretty sweet deal, really wish that they could timetable my classes to finish each day by 11am. How many teaching hours was that for each week?

Sounds like the school might have simply compared what they're doing, with what other schools are doing, and decided that they have been giving you a really sweet deal over the past 10 years.

Oh and the short notice iv had..xpecting 2 go bak on monday ..they cud hav told me during this 3 month holiday!!!!!

And they could have done a lot worse. Like fire the whole staff and offer to re-hire at you at a smaller salary and a 10 month contract. Be careful what you wish for.

True but im not one of those teachers who get by on 30-50g a month.in 16 years working here as a teacher, iv always been on the 100g mark.and refuse 2 stay in a school all day for a pittance.

It wouldn't have anything to do with your spelling and punctuation skills would it?

Spot on mate.

His spelling and puntuation is ten times worse than mine.

His is supposedly teaching kids (poor little mites) if that is their teachers English level.

Pride before the fall and all that. Good luck with it.

Lets hope the op is not 'teaching' English. whistling.gif Thai teachers earn no where near 40k are always going in during the holidays and Sundays for training, but you don't see them moaning on the internet. If you don't like being well paid and don't like the School - then leave.

Are we talking with English teachers here or teenagers sending text messages?

I didn't want to be the first to say it, op, but your prose really does suck. Tough to read. It's SMS speak.

Perhaps acknowledge that you've been on a good number and they're putting it right. Money is tightening up everywhere. Unless this is a top international school, I know a fair few teachers in unis and institutes that are not on anything like that, especially such a cushy part time gig. I wouldn't hold it against the guy even if he is a tool. You've had several good years from them and they're generous enough in offering you a permanent position. Don't burn bridges. ;)

Go moan to your boss he can then go to the Labour department to grass you up for not having two work permits (for both of your jobs). 100K is a lot for any teacher so stop yer bitching..

None of my teaching relatives earn 40k, I know an Australian with a Phd teachng at uni and an associate professor, he only gets 44k, consider yourself lucky.
