Sam Jennings – 2012 – An American in Tainan, Taiwan
I just wanted to thank Carrie and Reach to Teach for all the help this year. Moving to a small town in Taiwan was an intimidating prospect at first, but Carrie and the Reach to Teach team were a tremendous help during the transition.
Starting from the first interview I knew I was working with a professional and helpful staff. When issues arose at my school, Carrie was with me every step of the way and helped me work through some of the issues that crop up when adjusting to a new culture and work environment.
Not being in a big city, I was initially concerned with lack of social opportunities available to me, however, by signing up with Reach To Teach I had access to a wide social network that would have been unavailable to me if I decided to find a job on my own. Carrie put me in touch with great teachers from nearby towns, and kept me informed of Reach to Teach events where I could meet other teachers who were in the same boat as me.
I would recommend Reach to Teach wholeheartedly to anyone thinking about coming over to Taiwan. Not only do Reach to Teach find you a secure job, but they are with you every step of the way as you adjust to your new life abroad.
