    Graduates can live like kings, teach Thailand's crown prince

    The idea of getting paid for teaching English in Thailand is exciting enough for most people, but imagine living in the palace and teaching the son of the future King of Thailand. The interviews for eleven positions, including two teaching the future king of Thailand, began Monday and will continue through Wednesday.

    The two palace employment opportunities are offered to Baylor graduates who want to teach English to the pre-kindergarten class of the 3-year-old son of the future King of Thailand, Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkor at Chitralada Palace School beginning late May.

    "This job will benefit particularly for those immediate May graduates," said Kathryn Mueller, senior lecturer in Sociology, "because their school year is from the end of May the March 1."

    All expenses will be paid, including round-trip airfare, health service and apartment in Chitralada Palace area. Salary is paid monthly. "They will earn more than enough to live comfortably," Mueller said. "They can also make extra income in tutoring children there if they want."

    Applications are available in 316 Burleson or 204 Poage Library. For further questions, contact Kay Mueller at Kathryn_Mueller[at]baylor.edu or 710-6235, and Beth Walker at Beth_Walker[at]baylor.edu or 710-4825.

    Chitralada Palace School, located inside the Chitralada Palace, was initially established for the royal children of the King Bhumopol and Queen Sirikit.

    My friend had a funny story about this job... definitely not postable.

    I'm not sure if I remember correctly, but I think that the Baylor Connection came about because one of the princesses attended Baylor University in the US. At least they get room and board and the airfare taken care of even if the salary's not exactly up to par. And I suppose it wouldn't hurt to have a job at the royal palace on your resume, would it?

    Guess the future king will be talking like a Texan. Lord save us!

    Rat naow - immediately

    Amulants - a thing that takes ya to the hospital when your leg is broke

    Far angine - something ya call when your house is burning up or down.

    And for those Royal audiences - Ya'll come on down now!
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    And would you need a separate WP for this extra tuition you might want to do?

    Not even remotely interested. I saw their sports day on the news, and it was insane. Can you imagine a crowd of about a thousand people with colored clappers screaming for some 3 year old to kick a soccer ball?

    I just couldn't do it.
