Hello, my name is Sam. I graduated from University of California Irvine with a BA in (general) Social Science. Nine months after I graduated from UC Irvine, I went to Korea and lived there for 9 years, teaching English in the public school system. I completed an online TEFL certificate in 2009 and completed another online TEFL certificate just last month. I am currently enrolled as a student in Northcentral University's Master of Education, with an emphasis in English as a Second Language. The only real reason that I chose Northcentral is that they offer weekly start dates every Monday.... I plan to take one or two classes at Northcentral until I am admitted to the online MA in Bilingual/ESL Education program at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. My ultimate goal is to return to South Korea so that I can teach English (EFL) on a full-time basis. I am enjoying all the info on this site.
