Why not make your impact greater by helping children all over the world and begin your career student teaching abroad? Through international student teaching placements, you will learn similarities and differences between educational systems, develop your ability to think on your feet, give yourself a decisive edge in your career options, develop leadership skills, and build teamwork through a sense of adventure.
