I work on the pizza counter, fish counter and rotisserie.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I would like to get started in teaching, as I would like the option of having a career in teaching or in private tutoring. I can see me doing this for one year, or 5, or forever. I don’t know yet, and I would like to find out.
I am interested in the culture. I have heard stories of people who have moved over there and spoke very highly of politeness and inclusiveness, food, transport, and I would like to experience this for myself! I am eager to learn from people who will see life a little differently than myself, and I am excited to see what philosophies I will take away from the experience!
I am eager to be challenged and thrown into an entirely different situation, since I have never taught as a job before, I will have no social circle, I will not know my way around (wherever I end up) and I won’t be used to the food. Although, I tried Kimchi over here, and I can see why it’s eaten with so many other foods! Every time I look forward to difficulties ahead, I end up looking back and seeing myself grow. So, to see how I change!

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I look forward to working with children and have always felt comfortable talking to them and thoroughly enjoyed my 2 weeks volunteering as a teaching assistant in a school and 9 months in an afterschool homework club.
I am interested in learning in general, not just as a teacher. I have taught myself about spaced repetition, encoding, needing to be engaged (not just highlighting words, too passive) in order to teach myself computer programming and how to increase our lifespan, amongst other things.
I am eager to keep improving, and I will be asking for recommendations on any preperation I can make to help my job go as well as possible between having confirmation and me starting, and will be doing the same during my time in Korea.
