Back to School



Hey Everyone,
I know it's been a while since my last post, but so much has changed over the past few months. I left my job as International Education Coordinator at the university I was working for and moved all the way across the country to start a new life near family and friends. Another huge change is I have decided to go back to teaching English (at least for now) and I just started a new job at a language college in Halifax that starts next week. Going back to teaching is both an exciting and nerve-wracking experience and I can appreciate how new teachers feel. These are some of the questions floating around in my head:

- Do I still have what it takes to teach English?
- Have the students changed since I last taught? And if so, how?
- How will this new workplace differ from the last school I taught at?
- Is this the right choice for my career path?

And so many more questions......

Over the next couple weeks, I'll be posting how this experience goes. Also, I'd love to hear from you about some suggestions for someone who has been out of the classroom for the last few years. Please comment below or contact my Google+ account.

  1. Best of luck on your new endeavour! I think teaching is like riding a bicycle - even if you haven't done it for a while, it will come back almost right away:)
