In response to Re Sino-Canada = ESL Hell! (LostInZhongGuo)

What is the NAME of this agent? Is she called Maggie Mei? She recruited me at this pathetic excuse for a "school"? I arrived here and within a week my classes were taken off me without explanation and I was given another group who were taken off me again without explanation. I then had 2 or 3 weeks when I was just doing cover work and shortly after the visit of Betty Boult the BC agent, the Principal at the time randomly came to my office and said "can I talk to you?" He then unleashed a torrent of abuse at me and said "your students are deserting you" and accused me of "abusive disciplinary procedures". I then told him that I hadn't been given any regular classes and that I was being shuffled around like a pawn in a chess game and furthermore that I hadn't been equipped with class lists, textbooks, etc. His response was "those are just excuses!" and he then said "its not your job to discipline the students. Treat them like they're your children".

The following week, I got given the Junior High group with whom I got on quite well. At the same time I was given a group of "grade 11" students who were just rejects from the BC course and were not sitting any exams and to say their behaviour was a disgrace would be a total understatement. In this time I was given drop-in observations and then the Principal told me I was doing fine. However 4 days after he told me this, he then popped into my classroom and said "tone down your rhetoric. Students are thinking you're nasty". This was grossly unprofessional because a. A principal should NEVER reprimand a teacher in front of his students and b. If you are going to criticise someone, explain what you mean. "Tone down your rhetoric could mean almost anything". c. Students thought he was nasty and they were right. He was always verbally abusing them and reducing them to tears over issues that could be resolved diplomatically.

That same day I was called into the Principal's office and given my termination notice and given vague feedback. I was also lied to as the Principal told me 5 students in my grade 11 class had left the school because of me. I found out this was a lie because the following week all of the students from that grade 11 class were still there. The school failed to pay my airfare or winter holiday pay because I had been "terminated with cause". Furthermore I was coerced into keeping the matter private and not fighting the matter as otherwise the school would have withheld my letter of release, which is an illegal practice.

Others were also fired or coerced into "resigning" around the same time. Also pay was often late or with held and bonuses were often not paid.

Almost 9 years on I have still not 100% recovered psychologically.
