Starting Something New

A message to everyone thinking on teaching abroad in China!

The first initial thought when I left for China was I have to start over.  I knew I would go into this without knowing anyone and living in a new country/city I don't know anything about.  This was one of the best and worst feelings.  I was nervous, scared, and excited all at the same time.  I can say the excitement over powered the nerves and fright.  CIEE really supported me through this process too.  You may have some thoughts about moving and trying something new.. I am here to tell you that teaching abroad has been so rewarding since I got here.  I have learned a lot about myself and a complete new way of life.  Everyone has been incredibly helpful and gracious.  They are always willing to help.  When I say they, I mean the staff and students especially.  I honestly can say I have no regrets since I have been here.  Teaching abroad in China was the smartest decision I have made in my life.  Now it is your turn to start something new!
