Currently, I am an international teacher. I have taught in five countries: South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Libya and China. I love anything international: food, weather, socio-economic organizations, volunteering, etc. Teaching provides the opportunity to get to know others, help others, save a little money, and get to travel a little.
Other people have always told me that I have a big heart and enjoy helping others. I certainly hope and feel that is true. Indeed, even though I’m a registered Republican, love the US military, and believe in individual rights and the free market economy above all else, I think everyone needs to have a good social mission to help others. To prove I actually stand behind these ideals, I always love volunteering, doing the right thing, making a difference, etc.
One day, I hope to return to the US for grad school, get some more research published to my name, and be able to keep ties with all the people I’ve met worldwide. Until then, it’s off to explore, adventure, and simply learn by living.
Currently, I would like to pursue more opportunities in international education. I love a field where every day is an opportunity to meet new people from around the world, solve problems that the old ways just cannot seem to solve, travel, and (in some cases) be well-compensated for doing what I really enjoy. I think it’s so cool that even something like a trip to the grocery store or a new restaurant can be a genuine adventure. I feel I am also earning some valuable life skills (such as how to live without a car, minimize consumer purchases, be able to enter or leave a country for immigration/emigration within a few days, etc.).
