Middle school teacher. American pay sucks absolute asshole unless you’re some kind of specialist with connections and are blessed enough to live in the right area. I was so sick of everybody always treating me like a disposable machine, that’s why I left.What kind of work you do in Japan?? Always thought pay was much lower in Japan or is that just China??Me!!! I’m in Japan indefinitely, so who knows when I’ll see her again ?. Haven’t been on a bike in a year and a half now unfortunately... I was making $10/hr in America and paying $700/month in health insurance and I’m now making $36/hr here with national health insurance, so I want to go back home, but don’t see how it will be possible for a long time...
Here she is, sorry if I ruin this thread for everyone else by having the best one ?.
Used to black, now it’s white but I can’t find many pictures of it white.
What do middle school teachers make in America? It’s around $10-12/hr right? $36hr here and it’s my first job in the public school system. I can only go up from here.
Japan pays well if you’re willing to learn Japanese and work hard. I studied Japanese a ton, and can read/write too, so I was able to get a job that was out of reach for most lazy foreigners here. I’m a white guy from Eastern Kentucky so I definitely didn’t have any kind of advantage to learning Japanese. I just grinded for years and years in my free time.
I will say this is an elite-level school. Like Ivy League for middle schools even though it’s technically public. I made a leap from another English teaching job in a private company. If you don’t speak Japanese you can teach some English classes in public schools but the pay will be less and the school will be like a normal public school.
