The school was easy to find and it was small. It’s conveniently located, not too far from Banciao (板橋市), through Sinjhuang (新莊市). It’s only to sub for a week, but my demo went very well. It took me a few minutes to find my way to the Jongzhen Bridge which led me directly into Taipei. I took a wrong turn and ended up on Aiguo Rd. but I managed to find Heping Rd. again.
My second interview took place in Shida (師大). It was a very small school, but with a reading based curriculum. Of the schools I have visited, I’d like to work at this school. It has very small classes, a dynamic owner who studied education and positive reviews from other teachers. They also have a summer camp.
Later, I headed over to the place on Roosevelt Rd Sec 3. where I would be subbing for a few weeks in June. The manager would pass my number around his other schools for more substitution work.
Even though it was pouring part of the day, I got a lot of things done. I was offered a substitution job in Taoyuan for a few days, but I still have more interviews this week. I’ll wait until tomorrow until I make my final decision.
I’m subbing the whole day on Friday, nine hours. That’s going to be interesting. Today was also the first day since January that I had a class for a while. I played a learning game, which the other teacher said that he’d use as well. It’s a version of mega-tic-tac-toe.
All in all, it was a good day. I came home at around 5PM, fed the dog and walked him after I had eaten something. I made a Thai Thom Yam soup, with chicken instead of shrimp. It was good.
