A typical day is very busy indeed with students who are very energetic and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job is getting all parents involved. I have learned to go with the flow.

The workload is immense, plenty of useless meetings, duties, kids misbehaviour and no support from the administration. Salary does not depend on your experience. That would be KBS in a nutshell.

KBS is ok however the school does not give their teachers enough training and the staff are not paid as well as other schools in their area. The school is very good if you need experience in an IB/PYP school as they will hire you with zero experience.

KBS management is very approachable in a professional manner. Staff policy, regulations and established work atmosphere binds all staff to become a good working team. They provide all resources to meet the mission and vision of the school. They provide collaborative meetings and training to keep and update competence of its staff. They give early notifications for contract renewals for staff to be ready for the next school year plans. Team teaching makes the job easy. Students develop a very good social interaction between the school and outside community through modelling good behavior consistently. Management supports social gatherings, allowing its staff to relax and feels everyone is a family. They always give yearly bonus to deserving staff and salary increase every renewal of contract.
Pros
Two months summer vacation paid, All Kuwait holidays paid, Trainings are paid
Cons
Asian Teachers have a baseline salary, different from native speakers

The teachers are constantly under scrutiny and when there is a problem there is no communication with the teacher. Many teachers have been fired without warning and for superficial reasons. The school director has been under fire for unfair practices by many former and current teachers at this institution.
The students are very difficult to control and their is no true support from the principal.

The only good thing I remember from this position is that some of the students are a true delight in the classroom and the staff is very personal and supportive of each other.
Pros
free transportation and opportunities for tutoring; the parents were very kind
Cons
not enough administrative support
