As we all know, now is the time schools are looking for native teachers. I want you all to steer clear of BrightKids (international/bilingual) Preschools or as they post "Özel ilkadım Anaokulu." There are several posts on this page submitted by the school, just the wording is a bit different or they do not include the full name. There are two schools one located in Fenerbahce and the other in Atasehir. There are numerous reasons why the school should be blacklisted. First would be is that I am a native speaker from New York and my salary was 3,500 turkish liras. I asked that I receive 4,000 for my final month with the school and she (Gulay) flat out said no, even though I know she needs the teachers. I never received a working permit, she asked me to do it through an AIESEC internship. I had a doctors note for the 1 day I was sick the whole entire year and she deducted from my pay. She does not pay for summers so basically for 3 months I will not have any form of income. The manager or owner Gulay is seriously unbelievable unprofessional. The whole entire year she was antagonizing me and refuses to compliment any teacher. It was just an overall poor experience. The owner is clearly in this business for the money and does not care for the well being of her teacher or workers.
