    Pagoda's Mrs. Dung ban me from the pagoda. Dung says I was not invited to teach at the pagoda.

    Mr. A. Cường, master Nhuận Tâm (who went to the USA in January 2014), an older Vietnamese English Teacher, a younger female monk staff, and some of the other staff invited me. I started coming to the pagoda in August 2013. The staff of the pagoda gave me my own class. I had over 40 students for Saturday and Sunday nights.

    Mrs. Dung says that I never had a class. I want students and others to tell her that I did have a class. I want my former students to tell Dung that I am real, that I am a teacher, that I was invited to teach at the pagoda. I was even promised at least 3.000.000 VND or more, which they have not given to me completely yet. But now, they say that I owe them over 1.000.000 VND for staying there.

    Yesterday, the 27th of February 2014, the pagoda did not let me eat, have a bed, have students, or have a bed.

    Back in December 2013, the pagoda promised me monthly salaries, free food and rent. Last Saturday, my students told me that my class was canceled. The pagoda didn't even tell the teacher (me) that the class was canceled. Back in December, I asked the pagoda if I could continue teaching after Tet, for February, March of of 2014, and onwards, and the pagoda said that I could.

    .

    .

    Why did the pagoda cancel my class?

    I am the only white American English Teacher at the pagoda and now they do not even want me. Remember that I did not ask for a salary at the pagoda. They gave me a salary in December 2013. Before that, I was volunteering there and I did not ask for any money but then they wanted to give me money but now they are saying that is not true.

    Tuesday night, the 26th of February 2014 at the pagoda, I met Mrs. Dung for the first time and she did not know who I was and I did not know who she was. I thought that Mr. A. Cường was the only manager, but it turns out that Mrs. Dung is the coordinator of some of the foreigner teachers that teaches at the the pagoda.

    Dung said that I never ever taught at the pagoda and that I could never teach there. Dung said that I was never invited to teach there to begin with, but I was invited. The staff told Dung that they do not know who I am and that they did not invite me, but they did invite me. I am hoping that the master Nhuận Tâm, who was in the USA from January until about March 2014, can help because I have been told that he likes me and wants me to teach at the pagoda.

    The staff forgot to tell Dung that I was teaching at the pagoda since August 2013. The staff procrastinated from telling Dung. They were not doing their job. I am being punished for their mistake. Dung blames me and not them. I am very sad that the staff does not have my back at all. They blame everything on me and not on themselves. They may have broke the rules by inviting me to teach when only Dung is suppose to invite people to teach there I guess.

    Dung says that only she invites teachers to teach at the pagoda, but the staff at the pagoda did invite me through the help of an older Vietnamese English teacher who was teaching Saturday and Sunday mornings 7 - 8:30 AM from around August to December 2013. Many of the staff and students and other people know who I am and many people like me and they know that what Mrs. Dung is saying is not true.

    I also lost my phone and helmet at the pagoda.

    The pagoda is lying to my friends about what is happening. The pagoda told my friends that I would get a monthly salary but now they are saying that I was never really promised a salary and that I never got a salary, but I did get a salary in December.

    Yesterday, my friend came to the pagoda looking for me and the pagoda told that friend that I was not there, that I went out to buy something. People who know me know that I never really go out to buy things. I am way too stingy to go out. That was a lie that the pagoda told. I was there. My friend told me about this today and I told that friend that I was at the pagoda all day yesterday starving to death.

    My friend asked yesterday why I was kicked out from the pagoda, but then the staff of the pagoda told her that I was not kicked out of the pagoda and that I can stay there but that I do not want to stay there. That is not true. I do want to stay there but they do not want me to stay there, but I was formally invited to stay there from the master.

    The staff at the pagoda all seem to like me until Mrs. Dung met me. Immediately, Dung told everyone that my visa is expired, but my visa is not expired. Dung started telling everyone lies about me and now everyone hates me.

    People at the pagoda are all yelling at me and I do not know what to do now.

    In December 2013, my friends asked the staff at the pagoda about me. In January 2014, I emailed the pagoda in English and Vietnamese. I asked them questions but they never responded to me. They need to communicate with me but they refuse to be honest and to talk to me.

    Can you share this?

    My email is OriginalOatmeal@Gmail.com

    Please contact the pagoda and the police.

    Please tell your friends and ask people to go to the pagoda.

    Please do not allow people to disrespect foreign English Teachers like this. Please try to understand the details that I am writing here.

    Can somebody talk to the master for me?

      1. You have resorted to name-calling? The success of the teachers are judged primarily on the success of their students, not by meaningless certificates, degrees, and other such qualifications that look good officially on paper but that may not actually relate to practical real-life progress for the students.

  3. Seriously dude, all you ever do is complain about stuff. I have lived all over the world in Vietnam for over 5 years and never got into the situations you have, or seen it. Coincidence it always happens to you? No, I don't think so.

    On another note, for a so-called 'English teacher', having looked at a lot of your writing across many of the social networks you use, and subsequently become banned from (a surprise? I don't think so), your English is pretty appauling
