I'm not a recruiter, I just work at Anuban Roi-Et as a teacher. We're looking to fill a position immediately as we recently lost a teacher to cancer. I'm happy to answer questions about my school. In fact, my speech kids have placed 1st-3rd in all of their contests this year, so I might brag a bit.
Roi Et is one of Issan’s oldest cities carrying a long history and retaining a charm and sense of religious, culture, and identity all its own. It is famous for high-quality Thai jasmine rice planting and also known for traditional textiles and wickerwork.
Roi Et is a large city in the center of the region, so visiting different areas in the Northeastern region can be accomplished by bus, but we also have an airport. It's a large enough city to have 2 malls, 3 large grocery store chains, and a large park with a lake. If you enjoy exercise, there is a popular footpath around the lake for walking or jogging.
The people are friendly and being a teacher in Roi-Et is highly respected. Anuban Roi Et is an award winning primary school with three different programs, normal, gifted, and English (EP). Students need to test into the English Program. So, generally, you are dealing with the more talented English speaking children. The normal program and gifted program offer English classes, but the English Program has
classes in English for Math, Science, Health, Computers, and Physical Education as well.
The school will assist with finding a furnished apartment and we are great about partnering new teachers with an English speaking Thai teacher for questions or needs that you might have. For example, my studio apartment with cable and internet included is 3,500 baht per month plus water and electric.
