Right after starting to write a complete curriculum from P.1 - P. 6 EP, plus one for the ordinary classes from Kindergarten to grade 9, besides teaching for a school that doesn't appreciate anything a foreigner's doing for the school and the kids, I just received a new teaching schedule. It was actually only about an hour I couldn't cover because I already had a class at this time. Not a big thing, the hour was changed and a new schedule given to me two days ago. Our EP classes are only 50 minutes long, but the new schedule showed an hour for the afternoon classes. Of course, was I thinking that a little mistake occurred, but had to find out that all afternoon classes from now on will be 60 minutes long. Wouldn't you at least expect that somebody tells you that before you have to stay ten minutes longer in each afternoon class? I already had 21 contact hours and am now topped up to 22 hours. Sometimes a few hours more if a "Thai teacher can't make it." What would you think when they do that to you, without telling you anything beforehand? When should I do the curriculum that won't be either financially or otherwise appreciated and when should I create and check all the homework, worksheets, lesson plans, etc? I'm already spending my Sunday afternoons with preparation for a six-hour marathon on Monday. When is enough really enough? I'm in my third year at this school, never had a pay raise and I'm really very upset now. We've got an old saying in good old Germany when you give somebody your little finger they take your whole hand or your whole arm. And that's exactly how I feel now. A farang, they believe they can do anything they want to him. I'm the only whitish guy at this school and I really feel raped and strangled.
