Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I really enjoy working with kids and learning about new cultures and places. I had a really valuable and rewarding experience teaching in Ethiopia and also felt like I was able to contribute a lot of knowledge because I have been lucky to grow up in a native english speaking country and have great education. My passion lies in making sure even those who didn’t have the same opportunities as I did growing up can still get excited about learning and be on an equal level with anyone in a native speaking english country.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I would be a suitable candidate because not only do I have experience working with kids and enjoy it, I have also already worked overseas in a developing country and found an even greater passion for widespread equal education which I would bring to this organization.
