Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I love travelling and want to see the world. I also really enjoy working with children but haven’t fully decided if I want teaching to be my full-time career as most of my experiences so far have been recreational activities with children. I feel as though this is the perfect experience for me to gain an understanding of teaching as well as experiencing a different culture.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

I have had 2 summers away in America where I have really enjoyed working with children, and have grown professionally- Iam going back for a 3rd summer in June in a senior position. I feel as though I possess good skills in handling children’s behaviour even if I haven’t had much classroom teaching experience but I am very keen to learn.
