Any well groomed white person that owns a few business suits can do that in China…
I manage a school. I'm the boss and it's one location out of an international English training franchise.
I work 50+ hours a week. On top of teaching a few different groups of students (ranging form 3 years old to 15) I give job interviews, train new teachers. I observe teachers and give feedback. I run workshops that improve the quality of teaching in the school. I meet with parents, managers of other schools and upper management from China's head office on a regular basis.
I have formulated new procedures and methods that have benefited not just my school but other schools in Tianjin.
And I walk into the school every day in shorts, a ragged t-shirt, tattoos and a messenger bag before changing into my suit.
So no..not just any well groomed white person can do my job and make the kind of money I make here but I will admit it can help you get your foot in the door. Fortunately, if you have no skills you'll never get asked to sign another contract. ;)
