How can we keep our teachers?1.1.17
*I wrote this a few months ago for a 'contest' at our school. I didn't win the prize, to travel to South Korea for their TESOL conference, but writing the essay helped me realize a few things: how passionate I am about teaching and creating the best possible environment for us, and that so much can be done to help teachers, especially when schools (particularly in the US) appear to be hemorrhaging them.
You know even though I work abroad, the same problems plague schools all over the world. I hope this post reaches the right managers, teachers and principals.
What do you think? Do you work at a school that values you?
