Teaching is inspiring. Nothing feels more rewarding than impacting the lives of the young students that are in your class. I have been teaching pre-school for 2.5 years in Shanghai before coming to Beijing.
I did my undergraduate degree in Microbiology from The University of Toronto. After doing my undergraduate degree, I worked as an office administrator for 5 years in the Toronto Real Estate industry. During that time, I travelled solo to Asia and the experiences that I gathered during that time, introduced me to a career path of teaching abroad. Returning home from that trip, I was compelled to research this option and completed the TESOL course to begin my journey of teaching. I was hopeful that my engagement with an unfamiliar culture, so far removed from my comfort zone, would inspire me to learn more about myself and consequently led me to pursue PGCEi from The University of Nottingham.
