Teaching in Punta Cana

I've been thinking about moving to Punta Cana for a while now. I'm a teacher back in NY and would like a teaching job here as well. I have an interview at a school, however my concern is how conservative the schools are here. I have visible tattoos and am scared I won't get hired because of that. I have a bachleros in bilingual education, masters in special education and TESOL.

Hello Vtapia,
I would cover them for the  first interview. I just went through a a round of interviews myself and landed the position. Just get a sense of the atmosphere. Good luck!

Cover those you can for the interview.  Tats are pretty common here

Tats are not well accepted here by local conservative culture. Until you know the schools culture - cover them up.


Thank you everyone, that's exactly what I'll do.
