It's a coed public school located on the west coast of the island with a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea

School officially starts at 9:00 each morning but I'm usually there by 8:30. I report to the principal and make my way to my classroom. I currently teach 7-8 year old. I'll review my plans for the day. Make sure that all the required resources are available for each lessons. I accompany my class to morning assembly then back to the classroom for teaching. I take the daily attendance. Many times the students will have an experience or something that they may want to share and then it's time for lessons. School ends at 3:00. Class is dismissed and I"ll usually stay behind an extra hour or so, reviewing the day, correcting books and making notes for the next day and subsequent lessons. The students are usually a joy to teach and very responsive. Classroom management is never an issue as there is mutual respect between us. Management at the school is pretty good and there is good communication and professionalism among the staff. The hardest thing about my job is sometimes the parents and the pressure they place on the children at times. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the satisfaction and pride on the face of the children when they have achieved something, no matter how small.

Pros

Work hours go by quickly

Cons

little opportunity for upward mobility

Teaching life

Teaching is fun, challenging and it needs alot of sacrifices. The late night preparations for the next day. Engaging students and trying to get their attention at all times in order to them to learn something at the end of the day.

Pros

Wellness Program

Job is very demanding and not enough income

My job as a teacher is very stressful and I'm being underpaid. Hence I need a better paying job to offset my expenses. HoweverThe job is not completely bad, since I gain new experiences everyday.

educative and value addition to learners

flexible working hours with a lot of supervision. The school is multi-racial thereby bringing challenges of integration. Working with Children is the most enjoyable part although the remuneration is not commensurate with the workload. However there are opportunities for further training through workshops.

Pros

free lunch and fuel

Cons

non monetary incentives.

Exciting but very static and not adventurous

Exciting but very static kind of work. Little or no progress on my part as a teacher because you have to depend on salary alone. Not adventurous. However, team work spirit is encouraged.

Good for a year

There is no opportunity for advancement but it is a nice place to work and get to live in Spain. The first three month's of having to adjust in a new country can be difficult, but after that it's worth it.

It was a relaxed environment then but with low benefits

There was n't much to learn as there were no challenges but a repetition of the same stuff over and over again and it became boring. At the end it was just going there to just reproduce the same things year in and year out. It was difficult to advance one's self because if one was to go for further studies the salary was to be cut by half and housing and transport allowances removed

Pros

A relaxed environment

Cons

No challenges and limited chances of self advancement

a dynamic and noble job

One day i was teaching the 3rd year classroom, and i felt like i had all their attention, just because i included a brieve strory about a friend who decided to quite his stadies in early age, and the misery he suffered, they were so attached and i had the feeling that my message was well transmitted. And to me this is the most glorified moment.

Pros

Winter, Spring and summer holidays

Cons

Classes are overloaded, sometimes more then 45 students
