We often hear/read about how the ‘farang’ teacher has no real resect from the students at government schools, but for me I find that some of the ‘bad’ classes aren’t just bad with me as their farang teacher but they exactly as bad as their Thai teachers. Yes, we aren’t respected by the kids just the same as the Thai teachers. Thai teachers just don’t respect us, the farang teachers. One such school is Udon Pittayanukul in Udon Thani. I try to gain a little respect from the Thai teachers at the schools, but at the end of the day it’s so hard. Do you find it the same, or not? What kind of things do you have to do with the Thai teachers to try to gain that little respect from them?
