Hello, I’m Sorcha. My mission is to empower as many of you as possible to find your ideal teaching job abroad – one that is personally, professionally and financially rewarding.
Check out my blog here to find out how I can help you to become a personally, professionally, and financially empowered expat teacher.
I am an expat teacher who has been working in schools in the Middle East for the last 5 years. In this time, I have had such a wonderful time- personally, professionally and financially.
Personally, I have made lifelong friends from all over the world- best friends who I never would have met otherwise. I have drunk tea in Sri Lanka, prayed at temples in Nepal, witnessed the Serengeti’s great migration on safari in Tanzania, trekked to Macchu Pichau in Peru, haggled at the Souq Waqif in Qatar, walked the Great Wall of China, visited the Grand Canyon, and tried to salsa in Cuba! I have also been able to treat my wonderfully supportive family and friends to trips and gifts that I couldn’t have done before. And isn’t that something we all hope to be able to do one day?
Professionally, I have taught such eager and hardworking students. I have learned so much about the Middle Eastern culture from listening to the stories told by my local students. I have had the chance to take on a head of department role in my subject area, English as a Second Language. I have fulfilled my ambition to study a postgraduate Careers Guidance qualification and take on a Careers Adviser role alongside my teaching. I have learned so much from talented teaching colleagues too. Isn’t that the kind of school environment we all want?
Financially, while living an abundant life full of travels and treats, I have still managed to save consistently. After 4 years of teaching abroad, I was able to buy a house in my home country AND do my MA in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching at King’s College London last year. These wonderful experiences happened thanks to my savings from 4 years working as an expat teacher. And if I (the state-educated daughter of a carpenter and a teacher from a small country town) can do it, you most definitely can too!
All in all, I have been inspired by my environment and experiences to grow and evolve into the happier, more confident, more financially secure, and more ambitious person I am today, thanks to my time as an expat teacher.
I believe we all have the ability to live the lives we dream of. I believe being an expat teacher is one sure way to help you live the life you have always wanted. The problem is that we just sometimes don’t know how to achieve this life. This is why I am here. I want to demystify the expat teaching process, so you can get your ideal teaching job abroad. I want to teach you the simple steps you can take to make sure that your expat teaching experience is as rich and rewarding as mine has been and continues to be.
