Season of Change: From one place to another!

It has been quite some time since my last post and felt there was no better time to update than now! While there are many reasons for my absence...the top three would have to be:

  1. My international school job search was running from September of last year until around mid-January. (stressful but exciting)
  2. I accepted a new position ES School Counseling position (PK-2nd) at a school in Jeju, Korea! 
  3. My partner and I have braved the transition and move here and are starting to feel more settled now that the school year has started. 
It was truly difficult to say goodbye to our home for the past three years in Vietnam; however, we are both very excited for new possibilities in Korea! We left our fast-paced life in the city and have traded it in for island life! Jeju is lovely and we feel supported by not only our new school but also our friends and family. I highly encourage you to check out Korea and specifically Jeju if you ever get the chance! Have any specific questions about my experience thus far? Comment below! 

Although it is only September, I feel that the buzzword for this upcoming year will definitely be, GROWTH. I am entering my fourth year as a School Counselor and as I look back on my experience thus far,  I am humbled by the opportunities I have been given and how much I have truly grown as a professional. I couldn't have made it this far without the support from my family, colleagues, administrators, and my partner. What is your buzzword for the year? Who is part of your support team?

In addition to our new move, I have restarted my twitter account and am back in the game! Interested? Follow me on Twitter HERE! I am trying to post weekly to stay up-to-date!
Look out for more updates and posts coming up this year!
