Teacher Karla: A Filipina Teacher in Seoul

Last year, I joined a forum of Filipino travelers. This year, I started posting pictures of my adventures here in Korea.  Whenever I post something, one or two people add me and ask questions about my life and career. Here are the frequently asked questions:

Yes. I’m an English Teacher.

  1. Did you take any online course like TEFL?

Yes. But when I took it, I was already hired.

  1. Are they strict when it comes to qualifications?

If you’re talking about public schools, yes. They only hire native speakers of English.

Our pastor recommended me. I applied online.

My undergrad course is BS Development Communication. I took some units in Education to take the LET (Licensure Exam for Teachers). Moreover, I also have 18 units in MA Education.
