A HUGE WELCOME to the Empowering Expat Teachers (EET) Podcast series!
EFET PODCAST 2: WHAT IS IT LIKE TO LIVE AND TEACH IN DUBAI?
In this episode, I talk to Sophie, an expat teacher who works in a British school in Dubai, about her work and life there and her New Year’s resolutions!
Links to topics mentioned in the podcast:
EXTRA INFORMATION: I forgot to ask Sophie how she found her teaching job in Dubai (e.g. through a teaching agency/ recruiter or applying directly) but I emailed her later to ask her. She said that she has always applied directly to schools (using websites such as TES) and has never used a teaching agency as she has never felt the need to.
NOTE: I am sorry in advance for the background noise in some parts, as it was my first time podcasting! Sophie was so wonderful that I have decided to publish it anyway… She gave such great information and insights into Dubai- too valuable not to share! Thank you for bearing with me and I promise to do better next time!
