TEFL, TESOL & CELTA certificate
HI my name is Eric Ulmer,
I am currently living in Thailand. I was attending a 3-week TEFL (teach English as a foreign language class) before venturing off to teach Thai kids. I was extremely interested in volunteering with a superb NGO and I found V2T.
I am an American who spent two years working with special needs/disabled children as an occupational therapy assistant, teaching them life skills. I hold two American degrees, a Bachelor's degree in TV/Video production and Associates Degree in Occupational Sciences. I absolutely love what Volunt2Thai is doing and I feel that it would be a great not only for me but also for others to learn to fit in the community and to gain experience before they start a paid job as a teacher or before their school contract starts. I love Thailand and I love working with kids.
TEFL, TESOL & CELTA certificate, you just received it and you're planning to teach in Asia? Great!
Give back, use your skills to support the underprivileged children. It will help you to gain experiance before you start a paid job. Its a win-win situation, you will get some real life training and the children at the schools which can not afford English teachers also come to lessons.
