Welcome to TESOL Planet!
Dear Sir or Madame-
Since graduating with a BS in Finance from West Chester University, I’ve worked extensively within the finance and business development sectors. However, after years in the business world, I have reinvented myself as a primary school teacher and have never been more rewarded.
What initially began as a lark, has since become my passion. In 2012, at the behest of a friend, I took a part time job with Diga Brazil and was tasked with delivering lesson plans that increased the oral and aural proficiency of the company’s tour operators. The following year, I traveled to Brazil and gained my first exposure to in class teaching. I was hooked!
Desiring to turn my newfound passion into a profession, I completed 120 hours of TEFL training and was awarded a completion certificate from LoveTEFL in July 2015. Shortly thereafter, I applied for my first permanent international assignment and was hired by World International English Training School in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China. In 2017, I transitioned to teaching STEM (Lower and Middle School) and physical education (Early Education, Lower, Middle and High School) at BASIS International School in Shenzhen.
My enclosed resume outlines twenty years of diverse achievement. However, it cannot sufficiently convey my earnest desire to continue my career as a teacher of children. Fortunately, that can only be done by me. I truly thank you for your consideration and I invite your reply.
