It’s official. My first interview is complete. My first round of applications is submitted. My visa papers are being collected. My background check will be submitted soon. Where might I be going?
My next big adventure might be to….
That’s right, I just sent in my 11-page application page to South Korea to be an English teacher, complete with a mock lesson plan and essay as to why I’d make an excellent ESL teacher. 4 hours later…the entire application is complete. I am so excited to share that I am starting this journey. I might not get accepted, who knows, but in case I do get accepted, I want to start documenting this journey right now.
Should I get accepted, I will be working with EPIK, the top ESL program in South Korea. I will be contracted to teach an entire year, August-August, in an elementary, middle school, or high school setting. I would prefer elementary school or high school, but I don’t have a preference in the matter. There are a lot of perks with this program and I have the opportunity to save a lot of money, travel all through Asia, and experience something completely new to me.
Fingers crossed that my initial application is accepted! I’ll update as I go. 🙂
