Teaching English has been a rewarding part of my life for the last 3 and a half years. More so because it has taken me to parts of the world that I had only dreamed of visiting. I have lived and worked in Hyderabad, India for 3 years and I am currently teaching English to 3 to 11 year olds in Shanghai, China. I've grown up traveling the world, and continue to do so, expanding my knowledge about various cultures and learning from the very students whom I teach.
