There’s no denying that having both parents as teachers makes life easier. First of all, many non-teaching partners end up bored, frustrated and even depressed at home, alone, in China.
While their partner undertakes a new adventure and meets loads of new people, many stay-at-home partners don’t have it so easy. Yes, even if (or especially if) there are small kids to look after. Fortunately, there are options here.
Firstly, if your partner is keen, ensure he/she is also eligible to teach in China. Then, ask your prospective employer (if you’ve already scored a job) if there are any other positions available.
If you can both teach at the same school (whether in teaching or non-teaching positions) you really will have a much easier time of it. Not to mention, you will be earning (and saving) so much more.
