I have taught the Online TEFL/TESOL Certification Course since August 2018.
M.S. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction, TESOL emphasis, D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY
B.A. Biblical Studies, Pensacola Christian College
Canada, Ghana, W. Africa.
I don’t necessarily have a favorite travel memory per se, but the relationships I established while living in Ghana were and continue to be incredibly enriching! Whether it was having friends over for a game night at the house, exploring new places, or trying new foods with others, relationships are the things that stick out to me the most from my time oversees.
Live in the moment. Too many people are so busy trying to capture the moment with their phones that they fail to soak in the sights, sounds, smells, and thrill of it all. Open up your heart and home to the local people. You will learn far more from them about the culture than you will from anyone else.
If you are interested in teaching abroad, I would definitely encourage you to read, “Teaching Cross-Culturally: An Incarnational Model for Learning and Teaching” by Judith and Sherwood Lingenfelter. This book is essential if you want to maximize your time as a teacher and cultural learner oversees.
