Wouldn’t Recommend24 May 2023 - Kindergarten Teacher in TaichungRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
It was close to the housing they helped me to find, so I guess that is a perk
I actually was hired in 2016 which was the first year the school was open. It was really difficult for me because I had to use barely ANY resources or budget to create lessons and activities for my students. I was literally printing teacherspayteachers activities every day just to give these kids something to do. Tons of work on my end, and I never felt supported. My Chinese co teacher didn’t give me fair access to our allocated budget so she spent it on stupid craft supplies that she wanted. I had to have a serious discussion with her about this. I just wasn’t respected, supported, or given any choices within my role. I was basically just a white face for the parents to see in pictures with their kids. I don’t know if May is still working there but that lady was the most unpleasant person I have ever seen, let alone someone working in a school. She was like a black widow spider. Her energy was so off. And she managed all the teachers, so obviously she would never side with the foreign staff or have our backs and everything became an issue. It really tainted my time in Taiwan. I substitute taught at other schools that didn’t have these issues. STAY AWAY from Korrnell. It’s just not worth it.

I hated working here19 May 2023 - ESL Teacher in ZhubeiRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The pay is "good" if you can stomach the awful working environment.
The head teachers are idiots who have worked here for long enough to be promoted. Almost none of them are qualified teachers in any way shape or form. It's a boys club, so there are plenty of sleazeballs who've been using their position FOR YEARS to hit on young Taiwanese coworkers. The hours are long. The amount of grading is out-of-control. The class sizes are ridiculously large for a "nice private" school. There will be NO SUPPORT if you have class management problems, which you will, given most classes have 33 overworked, exhausted students. STAY AWAY!Continue reading
