Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I have been longing to travel outside of the states for a long time, and as soon as I discovered my passion for teaching and learned that teaching abroad was a viable option, I knew I had to apply.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

Not only do I have some experience teaching, but I have a long history of working in theatre and the arts which have instilled in me a second nature for collaboration, innovation, adaptability, and enthusiasm to learn and share new skills. I love working with kids and have many chances to work with people from different backgrounds, cultures, and languages. I am just generally very enthusiastic about all that teaching overseas has to offer and challenge me with.
