Living in Taiwan and the Path to Becoming a High School Principal with Doug Bradburn

Listen on: iTunes / Podbean / Stitcher / Spotify / YouTube


Featuring: Doug Bradburn


Doug has had a really interesting route to International School leadership. He joined the Navy and also worked as a high school football coach in the US. Doug moved to Taiwan to take on a teaching position and eventually moved up to become a Principal. Doug gives a lot of lessons about the mindset and attitude that helped him achieve this. We also talk about the reality and stresses of such a position, which is really useful information for anyone thinking that this is a route they want to follow.


We also discuss living in Taiwan: The differences between Taipei and Taichung and generally what it’s like for families, sports & social life. We get into learning Chinese and the challenges involved.


I hope you enjoyed the podcast and if you did please leave us an iTunes review it really means a lot to us!
