Supporting Information
Why do you want to teach overseas?: 
I want to teach overseas because I have always been passionate about the English language as well as experiencing different countries and cultures. I would like to have the satisfaction of seeing the difference I make in children's lives when I participate in imparting to them a skill that will benefit them throughout their lives. Teaching English would combine my love of learning, travel, childcare and language into one.
Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?: 
I enjoy interacting with children. I am also passionate about the English language and language learning in general. I briefly studied both Koine Greek and Ancient Hebrew in university. I believe that my easygoing demeanour combined with the serious consideration I give to both my own and other people's learning will benefit my students in the classroom.
