I recently completed an assignment as part of an interview process
for an ESL teaching position. This is the first time I was asked to do something
like this and I enjoyed completing the assignment immensely because it put my
teaching to good use and also demonstrated my abilities. It really gave me a
chance to shine.
I recently got certified as an
adult ESL teacher, more than a decade after graduating with a bachelor’s degree
in English. Although teaching had been an option in the past, I decided to
pursue other avenues—and I’m glad I did.
Over the years, I had many
great experiences, learned many things, and acquired skills that make me a
better teacher today. There truly are many different roads to teaching and I
would like to share mine.
