Honestly whats stopping me from quitting is the liquidated damage that I have to pay back if I choose to quit.. Itís close to 200k and obviously I donít have that kind of money with me.

Does anyone know any bond breakers? Or if itís possible to waive the liquidated damage?
There will always be bond breakers at different stages of their bond period.

One thing for sure is MOE will not waive the LD, and if you ask anyone on the street whether your LD should be waived, they will say no. Your paid training (and education?) and full salary during the training period was funded with taxpayer money on mutual agreement that you will give your full contribution to the nation's education for the agreed period of time. As a taxpayer myself who curses at the amount I have to pay every year, I strongly feel you should keep to your end of the deal whichever option you choose.

You are an adult and nobody can stop you if you insist to break your bond. There are thousands of eager beavers who want to join MOE as a teacher anyway; just look at the other thread.

MOE will not waive your LD, but you will be allowed to work out a repayment schedule via installments.

Only thing I miss, is the fixed, certain, secured paycheck every month. Oh, and bonus.

Well, can't have everything in life I guess.
I was a teacher for 3.5years before taking the leap of faith and quit end of last year, after securing a job in the private sector (took a 20% pay cut). I agree you that my overall work-life balance is better, I'm happier, and I have more time to myself (after work it is really time for myself, and I need to worry about worksheets to be marked etc). It was the best decision I made in my adulthood but I do miss teaching and I miss my students, as well as the bonuses.

However, I'm not ruling out the possibility that I will return to the service in the future. I am wondering if any one here quit and returned to becoming a MOE teacher again? How would MOE gauge your experience outside? Would there be a pay raise upon reentering the service or do you restart with the pay you got when you left the service?

Not too difficult as flexi - but for contract, the school must REALLY want you, since you'll take up a slot in their teacher quota.

I'm curious about the inverse direction - how does one exit teaching in MOE? What types of jobs would welcome my (relatively limited?) skillset? Especially in today's job marketÖ seems rather difficult.

If you can build good rapport with students and parents, I don't see why that cannot be done with your colleagues, unless past experience has resulted in certain level of biasness. While being wayang may help one score some brownie points, it does not cover up the mistakes that he/ she makes. Applying the same analogy, not knowing how to carry balls doesn't erase one's contributions towards the school, unless the mistakes are serious in nature, for eg safety or they comprimise T&L. I have teachers who are excellent story tellers and they put themselves in the limelight, but sadly, their actions often point south.

While some points you raised are true, I have seen JHs who moved out of C-, D grades. The ranking panel comprises the SLs and KPs, and I am sure that if you have achievements to back you up, it is hard to pull you down just because of their prejudice. I don't know what you meant by people (non-kps) giving you lots of work but making sure that you work alone as that isn't the norm with working comms around. Target setting at the startof the year should have lay out what needs to be done for you so sometimes all one needs is learning to speak up.

I have encountered teachers who went around telling people that they had numerous porrfolios, and they slogged all day long etc but I see them spending hours at the pantry gossiping and making a mess iof things while they continue to feel good about how almighty they are. So when not given an appraisal they desire, this group of people feel unjust and start to have lots of self-pity.

I believe you are still in the service. Don't lose passion and continue to do what's right. At the same time, look for opportunities if there are and maybe a change of environment might shed new light on things that you have been through.
Would technology tools such as those that can automatically grade assessments help to reduce the teacher's workload, and improve the teacher's effectiveness?
