I was employed for years with a good airport management job. That came to an abrupt end last May because of the dire situation in the travel industry related to Covid-19. Since then, I have had to reassess my priorities and mull over what I want to do in the next phase of my life.
I was an exchange student in Krakow, Poland back when Solidarity was fighting the communist government at the time. I chose Krakow based on my Polish heritage but didn’t realize what that time in history would really be like to see first hand. It turned out to be the most impactful experience molding the rest of my life and allowed me to appreciate everything we take for granted.
I have traveled to Poland every chance I get and even was able to obtain dual citizenship. That gives me a great opportunity to live and work in Poland and throughout the EU. I am currently getting my TEFL certification and would like to teach English as a Foreign Language in Poland. Being a TEFL teacher does not provide the best pay but there are other ways to get job satisfaction seeing the similes on students’ faces when they see progress while learning a new language. When asked as a child what I wanted to be as an adult, I would always say “a history teacher” so I have teaching in my blood already.
I want to teach English in Poland but first I need to clear my debts in the USA totaling $67,300. When I lost my job, I really wasn’t prepared for the new reality. If you want to be a Secret Santa or have been blessed in your life and believe my aspirations are worthy, I would appreciate your assistance in clearing my debt burden so I can be free to move to Poland and pursue my TEFL career.
Thank you for your generosity.
