Experiences from past teachers:
• Public school teaching differs from private school teaching in terms of larger class sizes and fewer parental expectations, allowing teachers to focus on delivering effective instruction and meeting educational standards.
• Public school teachers have the freedom to extend or deviate from the textbook curriculum with an international cultural focus, providing students with a more comprehensive and engaging learning experience that promotes understanding of diverse cultures and perspectives.
• As the only foreign English teacher in your assigned school, you may experience feelings of loneliness due to language barriers.
• Not all Taiwanese teachers, including school directors, may be familiar with the FET program, so foreign English teachers must be self-starters and take initiative.
• In some classes, foreign English teachers may need to collaborate with Taiwanese teachers. However, it may be the first time the Taiwanese teacher has worked with a foreign English teacher, which could lead to communication or cooperation issues.
• Public school teachers are often responsible for developing, finding, or creating additional materials, writing weekly lesson plans and reflections, and creating learning aids to engage and support their students in achieving educational standards and learning objectives.
• As with any job, teachers should expect to learn on the job and continuously develop their skills and knowledge to better serve their students.
• Some days, you may have no classes or work but still, be required to stay in the office without any assigned tasks.
