I think other than having a rather impossible workload I did not receive any support from administration when it came to feedback or encouragement at Sekolah Pelita Harapan....

I did not know if I was doing well or poorly according to them. We had one mini-evaluation in the first few months of arrival, but that was it. No one checked in on us and there was zero encouragement. I found it got to be rather discouraging at Sekolah Pelita Harapan. I think the main reason for this is that everyone is spread way too thin....

The other thing is: Sekolah Pelita Harapan is a National Plus school, so half the staff are Native Indonesians which can make for an interesting balance....

Due to the fact that the expat staff receive a completely different package than the locals at Sekolah Pelita Harapan, there was underlying tension....
