"The local teachers and other staff are so friendly, bubbly and enjoyable to work with. Our head teacher left about a month after I started to move to Hong Kong and go back to school so we’ve been without a head teacher since the beginning of August. But it has been nothing but a smooth running machine nonetheless. I’ve heard some horror stories about teaching jobs in China so I feel very lucky that I’m at a school with great coworkers and I get paid on time!"
