It might appear that going on adventures is how I earn a living, but I truly have a job. Although if anyone needs an ice cream flavor tester, I’m all in for a career change! Despite my lack of job write-ups, I really do teach 15-20 hours a week. Back home, that’s part-time work. Yet here, with transportation time and lesson planning, it’s considered full time.
Having experience teaching a range of skills, subjects, classroom styles, and learners, I thought it was time to share what has worked for me. There are few resources that I as an expat teacher found to be completely applicable in my classes and even fewer teaching activities that captured modern students’ attention. So many articles boast about teaching abroad being the perfect gig to travel the world and party every day of the week. Sure you can fit that into your plans, but teaching ESL abroad is still just much a teaching job as it is back home.
That’s where B&B Teach built its foundation. It’s a platform built to provide ESL teaching resources for those modern expats who have built an overseas lifestyle. Over the coming months, you will read articles with teaching strategies and advice ranging from all different types of classroom environments. You can read the first post here: 5 Objects Every ESL Teacher Should Have On Hand. You will also see the transitioning of some of my teaching abroad information from this website to that one, with the hopes of making the main B&B website travel and lifestyle-based.
I am so excited to share my teaching strategies and hear yours!
Live abroad. Teach abroad. Grow abroad.
