I am currently a teacher at Practical English Application Institute (Peai).
I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a Sports Marketing Degree. During my internship with the NBA basketball team, the Charlotte Bobcats. I realized this was not the career for me. It was the same as any other corporate job, which was something I did not look forward too. I really hate wearing dress shoes to work.
I came to Korea in 2008 on vacation to visit relatives and friends. I soon realized what a great and vibrant country this was. I enjoyed the food, culture, and people. I attended school at Yonsei Universities, Korean Language Institute while teaching English part time.
I soon realized that teaching was the best! I get to influence students directly and change the way they perceive life. How can this be a job? I would be happy to do for the rest of my life and I appreciate that Peai gives me the opportunity to do so.
