Whenever I am asked where I work by expats living abroad, I always give pause, a wry smile and say, 'Uncle Sam', with a bit of a chuckle. Although the school has a somewhat comical, if not unusual name, it is a very nice institution with great facilities. I work in the Banchiao office, and the management has been very helpful from day one. The facilities are nice, the building itself is conveniently located beside the MRT, and above all else, the children at the school are great. There isn't a bad egg in the bunch. I feel that one thing you learn while teaching English abroad, is that there is no such thing as an absolutely perfect school. Uncle Sam is no exception. Yet, putting faults aside, and realizing that work is work no matter where you are in the world, I feel that this school gives teachers, especially those with no prior experience, an excellent opportunity to learn the craft and earn a competitive wage.
