Q: Does anyone on here know

anyone working at a school outside of China? My principal (Public HS) just asked me to help him meet/get in contact with schools outside of China.  He is a good guy, so I said that I would.  Worse than that because I wanted to seem capable, I kinda said that I knew a couple of people I could contact.  But really, I don't.  I didn't work in education in the States, I mean it's not really my field, just something I started doing in Asia so I could stay over here a while.  Anyway, do any of you guys know anyone who / any school that would like to liaise with a Public High School up here in NE China?  

Reply here and also contact me directly if you have any ideas.  Gracias ~

It sounds to me like your boss has this half formed idea of co-operating with a foreign school because it sounds impressive when he talks about it but doesn't have any idea how either side could be of use to the other or how to go about it so he's hoping you'll just figure everything out for him and all he needs to do is sign off on it and take credit for it.

Liaise for what? I am working in Russia at the moment at two Schools. They're both looking for an English teachers, Native English teachers, but I am not sure about liaise.

Russian Schools pay for English teaching is way lower than at Chinese Schools.

I can get you contact with both Schools in Krasnodar, however I am not sure why your guy wants to liaise except to offer higher pay to working FTs.

I am the only FT working at both Schools here. I know few more Non-native English teachers (Pakistan&India) in the city.

There are another two Schools in my city both run by an American English teacher.

thx 77,,, truth is I don't know what he is on about, wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't know either. Might've just been him wanting to try to talk to me and sound like he was on about some professional topic. We communicate through the Head Teacher of the English Department. Senor Principal cannot speak two words of English, and I'm not much more adept when it comes to putonghua. Anyway, if I can mention you and your school as a contact I will look like I have done what I was supposed to do.  Couldn't be any harm in it,  this is a government public HS, not a language mill.

I'd love to work in Russia! Note that I am one of the few nerds in the world who has seen both Mao & Lenin !! haha :p 

and even though Russkiya may be Cold,, Russian girls are H o t !

 

I will mention the school and you as a contact if you don't mind.  I imagine that will be the end of it anyway, but a small chance he may want me to email you or something.  But honestly I think he was talking about other government public schools.   Still,, I'm covering my bases,,, thx again 77!  I owe u one ~

I've got contacts in the local education authority in Northumberland, England. I was looking to do some tours on my home turf and the connections were for the educational tours we were going to offer.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
