Working in education is a fantastic way to make an impact and to quickly form many connections in your community. Past Fellows have helped in a variety of educational settings ranging from pre-school to high school, and including schools with a focus on special needs, indigenous culture, or agriculture. There's a high demand for English co-teachers, and also opportunities to get involved in other subjects like art, music, PE, and extracurriculars like gardening, cultural events, and sports.
"When I teach elementary school, I love to stand outside of the classroom and watch as the students scramble in, each one reaching out their hand to shake mine or embracing me with little hugs, reaching over each other’s heads to grab my legs."
"Teaching is completely different than most other work. You work with people. Make connections, friendships. Build trust. English is definitely a need here and it does feel really nice to fill a need."
