“I teach because I see how learning a new language fits into people’s dreams. Without a language teacher, their dreams would be impossible, be it the American dream for an immigrant or a dream university for an international student. Additionally, I’m fascinated by the process of language learning and development of cultural awareness. Besides, teaching in general is just plain rewarding.”

“I’ve had plenty of mediocre instructors in my life—individuals who did just enough to get by and collect a paycheck. But every so often, I was blessed with a professional who brought passion and life to the classroom. They made me care about learning because I knew they cared. I want to project that same charisma to future generations. That’s why I teach.”

“As contradictory as it may sound, I am teaching abroad for the opportunity to learn — learn about a culture that is different than my own; learn a foreign language that was never formally taught to me; and most importantly, I think, learn about myself. How will I adjust and adapt to a different way of life? What will this foreign lifestyle teach me about my upbringing, my own culture, and my own use of language?”

“I want to be the point of exposure to the US for students who may not have had that chance.  I was always fascinated by other places as a kid but never got the chance to leave the United States. When I finally did, my mind was blown.”
