So I've been thinking about teaching abroad for about a year. I found a program that some people on here recommended that I was very interested in, teaching in England for a year. I wanted to wait until I finished grad school, which will be in May, so I could do it next school year. I'm not sure I'm ready to leave my school yet. I love my school and I love my district, but I know I won't stay there forever. I just don't know when would be the right time to leave. I also am nervous about being in a different country for a YEAR without my family and friends, when I now still live at home! That's a big change! So, I was thinking about volunteering abroad this summer. I'd go by myself, and it would be for 2-3 weeks, so it would be a good opportunity. I could stay at my school for another year. It would give me a year to move out and live on my own. Then, if I decided to go teach in England then I would be better prepared. However, it's so hard to plan life. Who knows what I'll be thinking by then. Anyway, has anyone volunteered abroad for the summer? There are several websites but I wonder if there are any out there that you have used, and what kinds of experiences you have had. Thanks.
