WHY DID YOU BECOME A TEACHER?
I became a teacher after I went to art school to pay off my student loan. When I started, I loved it! I taught Art and Design for 2 years at a high school then wanted to teach young children. I really enjoyed having fun with 10-year-old kids. They made me laugh a lot and I worked hard to help them learn. I thought, ‘I would do this job for free.’ It’s a very rewarding job. Teaching English has been a great way to travel and work. I really love watching my students become more confident and enjoy speaking a new language.
WHAT IS YOUR ENGLISH LEARNING TIP?
Write a diary entry and listen to English music. Take a notebook with you when you’re out and record new vocab and phrases you hear.
