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

Do sweat the small stuff. Enjoy the experience! Let go of trying to be in control or having the “perfect class.” Life inevitably happens. If you get caught up in the details, you will miss some of the best parts of your experience.
