I made the decision to leave the UK and move to China in March 2015 and can honestly say it has been life changing. I came over with only a little teaching experience and am now considering a career in teaching because of the experience I have had working at Happy Goal. I am now head teacher at my centre which has given me the opportunity to develop myself both personally and professionally by taking on more responsibilities so there is definitely room to grow and progress if you are looking to develop yourself and your work. Teaching English to children as young as three years old is extremely rewarding. Yes, it can be hard work and requires you to have a good amount of patience, but there is no other feeling like seeing your students run into the office to see you and tell you about their day, or watching a student grow from being shy and barely willing to speak, to screaming the words to English songs and being desperate to participate in every activity. Knowing that you are teaching a child a skill that could benefit their future really is what gives great job satisfaction.
