I wish I could just go to Japan for a month to teach English again. I wish it were an option only for the alums of our program, so they know that we know what we’re doing and that we won’t need much support. It could be a way for schools to test out having an assistant language teacher with the program. Then, if they like it, they hire a full position. If they don’t, they only had to pay someone for a month.
And we get to revisit the country and culture and the work and students we so love and miss, but without having to commit forever or move fully.
Win-Win-Win situation right there.
