Hello, im a texan who's looking to make an impact on the global education system as and English teacher

A very worthy goal.
However if I may offer some friendly advice, you do have to work on your writing skills.

ie. Texas is capitalised. The beginning of any sentence also should be capitalised. ( I instead of i )

You also used 'and' instead of 'an'.

Spoken and written English are two very different animals. lol.

A little practice and diligence will see you past this small hurdle.

Have you sought actual employment requirements ?
Is there a course of some type for this ?

Anyhow, good luck with it. If you are truly passionate you will overcome any barriers.

Grammar Nazi, out.



Ed: Just noticed that this is possibly in the wrong forum. You can ask a Mod about this .

In fact there is...
ESL Certification

I have a friend who did this recently and went to Colombia for over a year. Said it was one of the most amazing experiences of his life. Depending on the location you want to travel to it can actually be a really rewarding experience that looks great on future applications/resumes/etc.

From what i understand it is actually one of the best jobs a young adult can get before they go to college/during college or immediately after.
