Hey all! So the other day I had the opportunity of going to a meeting for students who are interested in teaching in England in the future. Personally, I had never really considered the idea of teaching in another country when I’m done my program, but lately I’ve been hearing a lot about newly-certified teachers going overseas to teach and gain some experience in a new place.
For the presentation we were lucky enough to have a representative from Classroom Canada, an agency that specifically hires teachers to work in England and helps them throughout their time there. It was great getting to hear her personal experiences with teaching in London, and how she got to do a lot of traveling while she was there (which is a big appeal for me!). Mostly, she talked about the overall setup of the school system in London and how different it is from Canadian schooling. It’s great to know that there are lots of opportunities out there for us future teachers after we graduate, and for you future Con-Ed students;)
Of course there are lots of other places to teach overseas, like Korea or even Australia! Either way, looking into teaching in other countries is definitely something I would recommend if you plan on becoming a teacher in the future:)
