You're the only site I know of that
actually lets us tell-it-like-it-is.
I want to thank you for that. I tried to warn colleagues about
the inept Director that ran my last school and other
review sites removed my post. I won't mention names. Thanks ISR
for giving us something that's really about helping teachers.
I have found that teachers in international schools have no protection..i.e.
professional organizations. Most international teachers are at the mercy of the
administration. The admin. know they have teachers over a barrel...you do as
I say or you can quit...and if you do....no recommendations. I have seen many,
many times that even when international teachers work hard they receive evaluations
that are very unfair. Thank you for giving us a place where we can post the turth.
I'm a member, and I love what you do. It is truly empowering for
teachers. Keep up the great work!
the power of this site comes through the directors
knowing that we, as teachers, now have something to work with.
in the end, ISR will help to provide more accountability
on the part of all directors. Thanks....
Dear folks at International Schools Review,
Thank you for actually doing what
I am sure many of us international teachers out here on the international
circuit have talked about. I have recently found a great international
teaching position after a couple of really woeful schools. It
is great that you are providing a service to international teachers
that is truly
Independent. After all, recruiters really act as agents for the
international schools and not the teachers. Perhaps your site
may have the effect of
forcing the fourth and fifth rate international schools out there
to pull up their socks a little if they wish to recruit teachers.
work!! This was an early Christmas present for me. My past international
schools are already flying their flag of mediocrity on your web
ISR....I wish I would have known about this site before I came
school. I have not told the school I am leaving, but will hopefully
not have to return in September. I have never thought of doing
anything so unprofessional in my life.
Just wanted to say thanks for creating this website - it's
about time somebody did it. I've often sat with groups of teachers
and discussed the need for such a service. Hope this is a huge success.
Will pass your address on to others. Regards.
Dear International Schools Review,
..by the way, I REALLY think that this something
that TV News such as 60 Minutes or 20/20 should
investigate. I would love to see some solid investigative
done on the topic of international schools. There
are far too many international schools that get
unfair hiring practices as they are not held
Dear International Schools Review,
Love the web site and have been spreading the
word. Thanks! As a teacher who is looking to teach overseas
in an international school I greatly value this website......Thanks
Hello International Schools Review,
I just wanted to thank you for helping me find a great position.
At the last conference I had three job offers. Reading what other
to say about these schools helped me to pick the best school for
me. I would be completely bummed next school year if I had not
reviews and chosen one of the other two schools. Man, they sound
like disasters. Thanks for making this site. I'll send you an updated
of the school after I'm there for a while. I'm sure it will be
very positive. Thanks again. Thank you for your time and the courage
to begin this venue.
