I am currently working as a preschool teacher in a private institution. I am planning to resign though I signed a 1 year contract...the reasons are here:
- They asked me to start training last Feb 2015 with a remuneration of 100 per day but I am doing the works of an assistant adviser...I learned from other colleagues that relatives of the school owner are given regular compensation despite that they are under training. Initially, this should go for a month only but come by Mar 2015 they asked me to go on training again for the same remuneration for another month...because I am also after the learning and experience, I agreed to do so...everything was done verbally...no contract at all...
- Last May 2015, they have me signed a 1 year contract as an assistant adviser, but a week before the school starts, they asked me to sign a new contract (1 year also) as an adviser...I told them that I am not capable of doing such because I only took 18 units of education and I am still learning, but the HR said - "Kung hindi mo pipirmahan eh di sa iba na lang namin ibibigay." - As if threatening to terminate the previous contract that I signed. The HR said that they will give me all the support and training needed for me to become effective in the said position (with 1 week time left huh). As expected, no training happened nor support given.
- This July 3, 2015, the HR talked to me and said that the school directress (who happens to be the owner as well) decided that I should be transferred to the SPED department for a month so I can learn the correct approach in teaching preschool students (Junior Kinder). They placed the SPED adviser to my class and I was brought to the SPED unit. They said that during that 1 month, I will be given proper training, etc. But what happened last July 7, 2015 - the SPED Head just showed me how their routines are done and after that, I headed to my own class and started it without any training. In the SPED unit, I am handling Senior Kinder and Grade 3 students. The SPED head only goes to my class and just observe what I am doing and just tells me in front of my students of what I should do or not do.
Now every time I go out of the SPED room, I really feel shy when my Junior Kinder parents sees me because I can't explain as to why I am in the SPED unit.
Given these facts, can I consider those as reasons for resigning immediately? Will I be held liable if I don't serve the 30-day rule? If I serve the 30-day rule, will I be off the breach of contract thing?
I am really hoping that someone can answer and enlighten...I really can't go on working with a school who made me feel like I am an experimental hamster.
Please help...thank you in advance.
