What it’s like to work at Woodstock

 

“It has been an extended honeymoon for my wife and I, and a good place for a young couple that does not have any particular roots to a location – the (relatively) low cost of living means that we can subsist comfortably. It has also been an interesting experience living in another country with a drastically different culture. Finally, it is a good place to be if you are interested in travel – Asia is a massive continent, and it is much more accessible when you are already in the middle of it.“

 

“Classroom management tends to be a non-issue at Woodstock, which gives me the freedom to focus on teaching and learning. I love plans and encouraging students to examine their own perspectives critically while simultaneously exploring new ideas. The biggest challenge is helping students move beyond the desire for high grades to develop a passion for learning as its own reward.”

 

“Working at Woodstock provides a great education for my children. For my family, it provides a chance to live in another culture and place. Traveling to foreign countries is nice and can be illuminating, but living in a place is a whole other level – there’s no substitution for it.”
