How Teaching in Korea Allowed me To Grow Professionally and Personally

Posted on Wed, Dec 06, 2017 @ 06:15 PM

Coming from University, more than four years ago now, I kept coming to the question of what is my purpose and why am I here. I felt lost and many of my college friends felt the same. There was always a big question mark after graduation and I kept asking myself  "What should I do next?".  With having limitless possibilities in life, it makes the choices feel impossible to achieve. Life is so big, and you only get to make these big decisions once. Before making this big life decision about what I wanted to commit myself to professionally, I wanted to explore the world and continue to find more about myself from a personal standpoint.  Coming to South Korea, I know that I have achieved all of these aspirations and more, and I now have the confidence that nothing is impossible.  In this blog I want to let you know how my time teaching in Korea has allowed me to not only gain professional skills, through teaching students and managing a classroom everyday, but also how my three years abroad has allowed me to learn many life skills which I will take with me no matter where I go after my time in Korea is up.

With 2015  having just ended, and the new year has just begun, it's that time of year when people start reflecting on the past year and figuring out what improvements they can make in the New Year.
