I have been here a couple of times before and I have really appreciated your advice, so I am back again with a question about the best place to teach.
Here is the thing, yesterday I was interviewd by a private school for a teaching position. This was my first interview for a private school so I did not know what to expect. The interview went okay alttnough I thought it was more formal than what I am used to. The Head Master was pretty direct and he started throwing questions at me as soon as I entered the door. I did not even have a chance to show my teaching portfolio to them so I feel badly about that.
Anyway, I am wondering if any of you teach in a private school or if any of you have opinions on the differences between private school and public schools when it comes to teaching at those schools?
I have mentioned this here before, but I am Canadian and finding a public school that is willing to sponsor me on a work visa has been extremely hard. So now I am turning to private schools. My greatest fear about a private school is the fact that the parents must be ten times more demanding since they are paying a whole lot of money to have their child in a private school. Also, I fear I may not be making the difference in these children's lives as much as I would want to since they already have a great life traced out in front of them.
Thanks for listening.
