Reasons To Work In China

In the belief that such things are very Western, my school encourages me to wear jeans, sneakers and t-shirts to work.

    That’s great. If you are in the US, you will fit right in with the grade 8 boys.

    Gotta love being a Westerner and working in the East, eh? As long as it’s not an Asian company.

    I loved that I didn’t have to wear slacks, dresses or nice shoes to school. I quickly learned that I didn’t have to when I saw all of my fellow teachers wearing blue jeans everyday of the week.

    I wish all jobs in the US were like this. That would be awesome.

    I know! When I taught in the US, I were skirts, hose, dress shoes, makeup, everything.

    I wouldn’t wear anything ripped to work here, but jeans and sneakers have become our foreign-teacher uniform.
