How does a twenty-something from the heart of the midwest find herself teaching English to Korean babes in Seoul?
Abbreviated answer. College took me to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa to study Graphic Design, Marketing and Magazines. Post-graduation took me across the country to the incredible city of San Francisco, California to pursue a life on the west coast, teaching underprivileged Oakland students graphic design and dabbling in the restaurant industry. After one year, I found myself desiring to, once again, push my personal envelope, go on epic adventures and, in turn, grow exponentially.
And so, here I am, over three years later, still in Seoul, teaching wonderful, vibrant kindergartners and loving every minute.
This blog attempts to chronicle my life and adventures in the ROK and beyond.
Thank you for taking time out of your incredibly busy life to take a glimpse into mine.
*I returned back to the states in March 2015 and currently teach PreK in Washington, D.C. at an innovative charter school and am a member of DC Teaching Fellows (TNTP). The mountains make my heart sing and I feel a great sense of loss without mountains in my backyard. As such, I will be moving to Denver, Colorado after the current (2015-2016) school year is completed!
