We know you’ve all got questions about teaching overseas, so to answer those questions, our International Schools’ Recruitment Manager, Rebecca Young, is going to be available at 8:30 pm GMT (3:30 pm EST) for our weekly #askteachaway Twitter chat.
Rebecca has worked at Teach Away for over a year, and deals with the recruitment for some really big programs, including Esol Education, NIS in Kazakhstan, private schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and several schools in Japan, Indonesia, and even Tanzania. If you’ve ever thought about teaching in the Middle East or anywhere in Asia, Rebecca can answer any questions that you have.
Before starting with Teach Away, Rebecca taught in Australia (her home country), Japan, and Paris. She was also a Curriculum Developer in France for a year. She’s no stranger to what it feels like to move halfway across the world, and she’s also really well positioned to answer your teach abroad questions.
Rebecca has done a lot of traveling herself, including to New Zealand, Fiji, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Singapore, Mauritius, Japan, China, all around North and Central America, and all over Europe and the UK. When she’s not hard at work searching the globe for the best teachers to send overseas, she’s an active woman! She swims, cycles on her lunch breaks, plans our holiday parties, and treats herself to some real fine cheese and wine (after work of course!).
On top of all that, she’s really nice, so don’t be shy! Ask her anything you’d like by sending us a tweet and including the chat hashtag #askteachaway. Rebecca will retweet the question before she tweets her answer, that way everyone can follow the Q&A.
