So, a little bit about me: I am a 29 year old Oklahoma Girl from a rural town in the panhandle. For me, I always knew that there was something more to life than the farming community that I grew up in. As soon as I graduated high school, I went to college with a full ride scholarship to Oklahoma City University, completing my Bachelors in World Religions in the Spring of 2011.
After Undergraduate school, I attended Oklahoma City University again for my Masters, completing my Masters in Liberal Arts in 2014. I have been working full time since then, and just completed my seventh year with an amazing company.
I have always been able to take time off for travel, but wanted to know how I could transform my love of travel into a lucrative new career: enter TESOL.
When I first went to university, my end goal had always been to teach, either at a high school or collegiate level. Unfortunately, the state that I live in pays teachers a paltry wage, and university jobs aren’t nearly as glamorous or as plentiful as I was led to believe. Life sometimes gets in the way of your initial goal, but I believe that if it’s meant to be, you can find a way to make it happen.
Classes officially start on August 20th, and I couldn’t be more excited! Looking forward to sharing my experience with you all, and hopefully we will both navigate this whole thing together.
