College graduate, licensed cosmetologist, licensed stock broker, and now…I can now add the title of “Certified TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Teacher” to my strange string of skills and qualifications. I’ve realized by now that I am a complicated individual. I go into one profession and onto the next because I get bored easily. I like to be challenged. No, I NEED to be challenged.
So when it came time for me to make a decision about how to get TEFL certified, it only felt right to choose the route that would challenge me the most. That meant that I would need to max out my credit cards to fly out to Chicago for four weeks to complete the TEFL course in person.
