My Travel Story

by: Alexandra Mahoney Start Date: Feb 21, 2017 - End Date: Jun 20, 2017
For the last three years, I have been living and teaching English in Spain. It has been an unparalleled experience that I never imagined would have such an impact on me and my outlook on life. Not only that, but it has made me understand the importance of spreading the English language in order to provide more opportunity for young learners. Before traveling and teaching English abroad, I had no idea how important it was for people from different countries to learn English in order for brighter futures with more opportunity. Being able to provide that experience and know that I'm making a difference in students' lives is something I hope to continue in my future.

While Spain has given me a great amount of experience in the teaching field, a TEFL certification was not required, and this certification is necessary if not obligatory to teach in most other foreign countries around the world. For this, I have decided to further my passion for teaching English abroad and will be attending a TEFL program in Thailand in the summer and then immediately seeking English teaching jobs afterwards. 

Although I have been saving for this trip, there are a great deal of expenses that need to be met before I can take off on this next amazing journey, and I won't be able to do it alone. With all of your help, I hope this dream can be turned into a reality. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you so much for your time!
