Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

First and foremost, I have a passion to teach. I was in Korea for 4.5 years and decided to resign from my job at a great school to go to study Education further so that I can personally improve myself. Now that I will be a qualified and registered teacher, I can make much more of a difference in the lives of ESL learners.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I believe that I am a suitable candidate because I have multiple years of living abroad and living out of my comfort zone. This experience gave me more confidence and I have taken that confidence and improved myself, not only academically, but emotionally as well. Living in Korea had such a positive impact on me and that is why I want to go back and share more of my knowledge and experience with those that are motivated to learn.
