You have to worry about what the OP is teaching the kids with such a blinkered attitude.Seriously? THAT'S the title of your thread? WOW! One of the beauties of Dubai is that it's a melting pot of nationalities and cultures.
You'll need to change that attitude quick smart matey. Why would teaching groups be 'filled' with Americans? Again, melting pot.
If you look through their posts, they've been offered a teaching job at a private school in UAQ and ask for advice in another thread.I don't recall the OP mentioning moving to UAQ - it was another member who first mentioned that!
At least barracuda is near - and the only traffic jams are caused by feral camels and goats....If you look through their posts, they've been offered a teaching job at a private school in UAQ and ask for advice in another thread.
So as I said, UAQ is NOT Dubai and is completely different. Watch out for the tumbleweeds as they drift by.
How are you a Hoosier from NZ?Hello Evanedu,
I hope the intent of your post is not intended to add to the already enormous chasm that exists between races, religions and nationalities. I am going to assume it isn't.
There is a counselor in Dubai that has some enormously informative and entertaining videos on YouTube, many of which are focused on teaching in Dubai. Not all of his videos relate directly to me (he is cool, young and black where I am cool, old and white), but many have given me a sense of teaching and working in Dubai. I think some of this was the intent of your message. If you do watch his videos and find they have value for you, please give him a shout and tell him I (Jay for New Zealand) sent you.
This link is to his first video "5 Things I've Learned in 5 Weeks in Dubai."
