As a new teacher in the city of Wuhan, the city in northern China’s Hubei province, you’re likely to encounter a whole range of challenges.
First and foremost, you’ll need to overcome the city’s reputation for corruption, which has caused some teachers to find themselves on the receiving end of abuse from students.
You’ll also find the city a city of strict hierarchies and social norms.
But as the local Chinese news site reported, the challenges to your education are even bigger than the corruption problems.
“In the past, I had to fight for a spot in the classroom because there was no other place I could teach,” said Zhang Zhijun, a high school teacher in Wuhans primary school, as reported by local media outlet Shanghaiist.
Zhang’s experience was not unique.
Many teachers have faced similar situations in the past few years.
Zhang is one of a growing number of teachers to take a stand against the harshness of Wuchans school system.
In February, Zhang said that she received a call from a parent in a neighbouring village who asked her to join him and his son on a trip to Wuhanyan, where he plans to study for a bachelor’s degree.
The family had no idea who Zhang was, Zhang told local media, and had no choice but to accept Zhang as their teacher.
The next day, Zhang was told that the two of them would be on their way to Wuchanyan to attend a conference of a local government group, a move that angered many parents who felt the trip was a waste of time.
When Zhang arrived, she was met with a mix of anger and confusion by locals who had been following the trip, she said.
They told her that Zhang had no credentials, had been fired and was now teaching in a school that wasn’t open to the public.
The local news site reports that Zhang was initially hesitant to join the group and was even afraid of repercussions.
However, when Zhang joined the group, she found herself at the center of an even bigger problem: The group was set up in a building that had no toilets, the local news outlet reported.
This prompted many parents to leave the group as they feared that the teachers could get into trouble.
It is not just teachers who face the challenges of working in the Wuhuan system, however.
Many students have also been forced to live in a crowded school where they are not allowed to attend classes.
In one case, a school teacher was asked to quit a class because the student had an eating disorder, according to local media.
This is not the first time that teachers have struggled to maintain class discipline in the Hubeian city.
As a result, teachers in Wuchan face a lot of challenges when it comes to teaching.
But they do have some great resources to help them along.
According to the local media site, the Wuzhenhui, an educational charity, has set up an online resource for teachers that they can use to improve their communication skills and also to help with learning.
And the Wuxinhai School of Public Education, which is affiliated with the Wuchuan government, has created a video course to teach English to the students in their classrooms.
The course, which costs around RMB100 ($3.20), will help teachers develop their English skills and to build better relationships with their students, according the Wucheng newspaper.
A teacher at the Wuyun school in Wuyuan told Al Jazeera that she felt that the school’s management had a lot to learn from Wuzhui.
According to the Wufeng website, teachers can get help with English lessons from a professional teacher, a professional translator or even from their own students.
“The students need to feel more comfortable with the language,” she said, “and also to feel they are in a safe environment.
The school should also be more open, so that students can learn more effectively.”
But the lessons that Wuzheng offers can only go so far in providing a platform for teachers to teach.
For some, there is still no option to receive funding from the Wushan government to pay for classes.
Zhang is one such teacher, and she hopes that the new Wuzhens educational system can help change that.
