I’m currently working as a teacher in Thailand. And it’s been an incredible experience. I’ve learned so much about myself, other countries, and the world around me. It has helped me to grow into a more worldly person that is able to empathize with others who are different than me. One of my favorite things about this job is getting to meet new people every day! Some days I speak English with students from all over the globe. Other days I teach classes where not one word of English gets spoken at all. And some days it feels like half my class speaks Thai while the other half speaks English. Both trying to communicate through their native language only! This blog post just scratches the surface on what life here is like for someone who truly loves to learn new things every day. Making friends wherever you go; and seeing all that life has to offer!
I’m a teacher in Thailand!
I’ve been teaching in Thailand for just over a year now. And it’s given me some great experience for my future. I also came here knowing very little about the country, its culture or people. Just that they speak another language and that their currency is different than mine. I’m happy to say that I learned so much more than those two things. I’ve learned the value of patience here, where I rarely ever experienced it back home. It’s taught me to be more open minded. Not just about people who are different than me. But also to try new foods and drinks that I didn’t think I’d like!
What are the challenges of teaching abroad?
One of the biggest challenges for me is being so far away from family and friends, but at this point I have a lot of great memories with them that will stay with me forever. In terms of teaching, it can definitely be challenging to teach under prepared students who don’t take their education seriously. But I’ve learned no matter how much you plan there are always going to be challenges, just like there are always going to be students who don’t want to learn.
Why did I decide to teach abroad?
I decided to teach abroad because it’s allowed me the opportunity to travel and meet different people. Most of my students are Thai, but I’ve had students from all over the world; it never gets old meeting someone new! It has also helped me become more independent – something that I really struggled with when I first moved out on my own after college.
What do I enjoy most about teaching in Thailand?
I’ve learned so much about different cultures and the way they live their lives. You don’t have to go far here to find something that is completely different than anything you’ve ever experienced back home! Traveling with students has been a lot of fun and it’s really interesting to see the world through their eyes. I’ve been able to visit so many different places in Thailand and it’s amazing how much you can learn by just going out and exploring a new place.
My experience as a teacher in Thailand
I’ve had some great experiences as a teacher in Thailand. I’m lucky enough to have met some incredible people that I will be friends with for the rest of my life, and they’re just some of the many students I’ve taught.
Getting to know other teachers has been fun too! I teach at different locations around Bangkok, so sometimes it’s been nice to have a break from the city and take some weekend trips with other teachers. It has really brought me out of my shell and opened up a lot of new opportunities for me, both inside and outside of work!
I am a successful teacher in Thailand. And my love for teaching allows me to make an impact on the lives of young people. In order to be as effective as possible, I also learned how to use technology efficiently by incorporating it into my lessons plans. For example, students will sometimes work on projects collaboratively with classmates from around the world through websites like Skype or Google Hangouts. Technology is a valuable tool that can help teachers stay up-to-date with recent developments in education and learn best practices from other educators all over the world! What are some ways you incorporate technology into your school? How does this affect student achievement? Let us know!
