What countries have you visited?

I have travelled to France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Canada, Mexico, Senegal, Ethiopia, Australia, and China (Hong Kong).  I have lived in Mauritania, Rwanda, and Morocco.  

What's your favorite travel memory?

I have many great travel memories, but one of the best experiences I’ve had as a traveller was when my younger brother came to visit me in Mauritania.  We travelled far up north and rode on top of an iron-ore train for 15 hours (460 km) in the dead of night through the desert to the Atlantic Coast.  We literally climbed up the side ladder and rode on the iron-ore, which was soft like sand and surprisingly cozy.

What Advice Do You Have for ITA Students Who Want to Teach English Abroad? 

I know that many people want to teach in Europe, and European countries are wonderful places to live.  However, I would encourage ITA students to explore opportunities in other parts of the world as well, specifically in developing countries.  The cost of living in many of these places is quite reasonable and English instructors are in high demand.
