How it all began
When I first saw my friend return from teaching English abroad, he changed completely, inside and out. The way he walked and talked was inspiring and surprising. I wanted to know more about his story.
Was it really possible to look at the world differently than just living in America?
When I was at the university, I thought America knew how to live and enjoy life to the fullest but from what I saw from my friend, that wasn’t true. I decided to learn more about this internal change so I decided to teach English where I would meet people and these people that I taught…taught me… more about life and how they view the world and live their life.
At the university, I met a man that knew a man that was his friend and he told me about Czech Republic and I said, “What is that?” I actually didn’t google Czech Republic because originally I wanted to go to Spain. Czech Republic was actually one of the last resorts but I ended up doing my first English teaching job there.
Why did I decide to go this way?
Because I’m a handy man. I like to shake hands not fix things as what a handy man really is. I like to greet people and welcome them. I like to give customer service and enjoy seeing a smile on their face when I teach something that they can use in their daily life and really connect with that person on a deeper level.
