    To Whom It May Concern,

    Good day,

    My name is Genevieve, I am from South Africa and a mainly Early Years English Teacher. I have been living and working in Phnom Penh for a year and half and currently working a short term contract which ends in January 2018. I have been working as a teacher for 4 years both in South Africa and Asia but have settled in Cambodia, Phnom Penh and feel I have found my second home here.

    I changed schools in August of this year due to unresolvable terms of contract renewal with the school management. I had worked for the school for 13 months and was ready to renew my contract, sadly for the children and especially the parents who were also very sad I had to leave and have given me personal references which I can supply as well, unfortunately I had no choice but to resign my employment. As I have worked for and experienced different schools in Asia I really do prefer and would like to settle at one “home” school where I can truly grow with the school firstly as a teacher long term and create a stable working relationship with School management, Staff, Parents and Children most importantly. I also have many other skills useful to any school in Administrative, Marketing, Events and other such areas as extra duties which I have preformed at all my schools being experienced and educated in these areas as well.

    I am currently teaching for a school which follows the Singapore Cirrculum which as a almost 90% Montessori Teacher it has been a challenge especially teaching 3-4 year old children but I have learnt a great deal from this school but will not be continuing with the contract from January.

    I am going back to South Africa for a holiday over December/January for the first time in two years, thus the trip is quite long. But upon return which is on the 19th of January I am seeking better employment, this was always a short term employment until the New Year where I can hopefully find the right school that is suitable to both myself and the school. Unfortunately I do not feel this current school is that school for many reasons, but mostly because of the teaching structure and the school's entire structure which I feel does not suit my teaching style and personality which is in no way a negative statement regarding this school but a personal suitability belief and decision. I am open to futher explaination if needed during an interview if I interest you as a long term teacher for your school.

    I unfortunately am working full time at the moment, interviews would only be possible after school hours or on the weekends and I leave for my trip home on the 6th of December and return on the 18th of January 2018 but I will be available for Skype interviews or phone calls or further emails when not traveling and arranged with the time difference of South Africa being 5 hours behind Cambodia and ensuring I am in an area where the internet or other is viable for such events while I am in South Africa, of course I am on holiday as well and will be doing family and friend activities but am willing and able to absolutely make time for interviews if needed, even if as a introdution interview and a further interview when I return.

    I live in Toul Kork, I currently walk to my school and walked to previous school as well but am willing to travel if needed. I do have a rental lease agreement signed until April next year. If confirmation of my return to Cambodia is also needed to solidify any possible employment, I can gladly supply my landlords details for contact to confirm my rental agreement is as stated and all my belongings are still in my apartment and payments made accordingly while I am away and until I return.

    Please see attached all my supporting documents for your information and should you require anything further, please do not hesitate to contact me, during working hours at the moment I cannot take personal calls but I will respond to any emails immediately after School hours or return any calls after 5pm or on Saturdays or Sundays and as soon as I can when I am travelling to, from and in for South Africa.

    Should you have any available positions suitable to my experience and qualifactions, please do supply me with any of the information on such positions and details thereof, such as: Terms of Agreement, Salary, Hours, Duties and all important information regarding any employment positions. I would very much appreciate it.

    Thank you very much for your time and I hope my details are of interest to you.

    Sincerly and best regards,

    Genevieve Watkins
