How do your goals fit in with teaching in Korea?

My qualifications and experience to teach English to South Korea students would be my love and passion to teach people younger than me something such as English that was instilled in me and taught to me growing up. Something else that I would qualify me to teach English to South Korea students is that I taught in high school through a program called Character Counts when I was in high school, and that I have been teaching kids, teens, and young adults ages 3-25 in my church since 2007 and currently still teaching there. My love and passion when teaching others make me so happy. I feel that all of my learning and teaching experiences that I have prepared me to do something like teach English to Korean students because I will show them the same love, compassion, patience, and understanding that I show to all of my students. I know that it is going to be a challenge mainly because of the language barrier but I feel that being able to teach them English would be so much fun and that it will be my greatest experience yet because I will be able to teach students something that will improve their lives and teach them something that they will be able to use for rest of their lives. That for me would mean the world to me!

– What are your future goals?
My future goals are to travel, experience, and learn about different cultures around.
– How do your goals fit in with teaching in Korea?
Well I love to travel and I love teaching others and even though I am going to school for information technology my heart, passion, and love for teaching will always be a major part in my life. Teaching in South Korea will fit in to my goals because I never thought that teaching abroad as being an option for me but after doing my research and finding out about the TaLK program. Being part of the TaLK program would help me experience a one in a life time opportunity.
-What specifically are you interested in about Korean culture/traditions (lay this on thick)
One of the first cultures that really caught my attention was South Korea because growing up when I was in elementary school one of my best friends was from South Korea and when we were in third grade she moved back to South Korea and it broke my heart. The older I got the more research on South Korea because I wanted to know more and more about where she was from, their life style, and their culture. I found myself falling in love with the culture, food, and their beautiful language and as I began to find more videos online to help me better understand everything about South Korea and fall in love with South Korea! I’ve always wanted to visit South Korean to learn all about their culture past and present first hand. I have always wanted to taste and learn how to cook Korean food. I have always wanted to learn their beautiful language and be able to have a conversation and become fluent in Korean, but to go there and teach there and be able to experience South Korea first hand would just be simply amazing. It would be a one in a life time opportunity experience for me!!
