But best of all I'm right across the street from the campus gym.
Good feels general
>tfw going through to be a kindergarten teacher
>looking forward to gym class and yard duty
>really want to do track and field with older kids
I hope teaching is as /fit/ of a job as you tell me it is OP
I dunno mayn. Your best bet is probably going with what you want to do and be a track/field coach. It's rare to meet a fit teacher here in amerifat
But what do I know? I'm not OP
Survival moon at best. Most of the teachers are pretty chill.
Depends on the area/school. Like 98% of my kids are great but I'm in a really academically strong area. Some areas are rough as fuck to the extent native teachers have been removed by their company for the native teacher's safety.
I thought that too before I started. Ive got two junior highs and the elementary. I like all of them.
From what other teachers I know the most common bad behaviour is kids flatly refusing to do work and just going to sleep or drawing on their desk. I've got a couple who do that but for me it's seriously like 4 kids out of the 1200+ I teach.
no physical violence experience yet? are you placed in the urban or rural area? pays well?
>tfw this is my one of my dreams
teaching english in japan seems to be a pretty mediocre dream but I just want to live a comfy life
Yes. Elementary too. They're starting young these days.
Not for me. I'm in metro tokyo. About 40 minutes on the train to shinjuku. I get around 2k a month in digereedollars so a touch less in bugerbucks, 210k yen. Rent is around 71k yen/mo so roughly 710AUD but I split it with my gf.
Yes. It's pretty shit. I taught martial arts to ages 3 through 18 and did CELTA (a ESL diploma). Experience and ESL qualifications aren't required but are well regarded. You need a bachelor's of some description to qualify for the visa though.

That's already a big salary for me because I'm a third worlder actually.
Thanks anon, the dream lives on! Hoping to graduate and pass the licensing exams!
Good luck to you and your qt gf (jap?)
I read on TiTech's website just now that they do have a "Weight Training Room", don't know if they have serious weights or not. Did have weird opening times though and "closed during entrance exams". God damn meme country.
I also checked Todai and they seem to have an actual free weight area in their gym.
Live with my gf so I can't help you there. I did have a couple high school girls take my picture on the bus and discuss how good looking I was so there's that.
There's a few companies do it. Basically they get a contract with the board of education for the area and dispatch assistant language teachers (ALTs) to the schools. Other companies have contracts with private schools and individuals.
I'd steer clear of eikaiwa though. They're shady as fuck.
Your question was grammatically incorrect. It should be "What's it like?"
