Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I want to teach overseas in order to expand my knowledge of cultures and travelling. I love working with children of all ages and really feel it is an opportunity to immerse myself in a new environment and take on an adventure that will change my outlook. I love travelling and exploring our world and I have not had the opportunity to visit Asia and this is a continent that I have always attached myself to.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have a passion to gain knowledge and keep a positive attitude, even in the worst circumstances. I have had the opportunity to travel and work overseas, so I am confident that I will be able to handle being away from my comfort zone and at the same time appreciate the opportunity to teach overseas. My family has a joke and always tease me that I am a gipsy even in my own country, as I am always exploring new places and love meeting new people!
