A polite note for your consideration
The employer is responsible for providing a safe working environment for staff.
In the physical workspace, the teacher should not be physically or verbally harmed in any way.
Kicking, hitting, being jumped on etc are unacceptable, and the offender needs to be punished.
In the online workspace, the teacher should not be expected to work with an unreasonable amount of background noise.
TAs and senior staff need to be more proactive in both recognising and addressing these problems.
The situation is clearly very stressful for all involved.
Let’s work together and make classes a fun, happy and, most importantly, appropriate place for learning.
Any student in a noisy environment should have their mic muted.
Any student who interrupts the class on a regular basis will be placed in the Waiting Room. Repetition of the offense will result in the student being barred from the class.
I have happy to report that my centre has taken action, and changes were implemented within a few hours of this posting. My Manager is pretty amazing that way – your help and input can not be overstated. Thank you.

Wish the pandemic will not spoil the new school year.
Thank you. Vietnam seems a year behind the rest of the world – the government did an incredible job in 2020, but the pandemic got out of control in Spring of this year. We’ve been online since mid May, and will – probably – continue until 2022.
Sounds long overdue

Not a blog I wanted to write, but it needed to be said. Exhausted and depressed teachers are no use to anyone. However, the centre is changing practices so the blog did some good 🙂
