am just wondering do public schools take on Native English teachers?
They can do. But it will depend on whether they have any vacancies - generally speaking, teaching is a "job for life" in Poland and there are simply too many teachers for too few children right now.
If there are no private schools anywhere near, then you know the market - non-existent. Generally, moving to Poland in such circumstances would be a recipe for disaster.
If they do, do they pay more than a Polish teacher? I'm aware that the starting salary is very low for teachers generally.
No. You'll be paid according to your qualifications and place on the "work path" - so essentially, the bare minimum. They cannot pay you more - this is all set in law.
I wouldn't do that if i were you, money is terrible and it'll be difficult to teach kids that will have a terrible level of English.
Come on, I teach 6/7 year olds every day...lots of paint and mess is involved :D It's great fun, but it's a private school - I dread to think about how a public school would be with the total lack of resources and large amounts of kids in one class.
or else just do private lessons in the locality.
Would there even be demand for private lessons in rural Poland? If there's no private schools nearby (heck, even places like Sanok have schools!) - then the demand must be incredibly poor.
Poland is not the place to live in a small village if you don't have connections/etc.
