Thanks for your advice. I appreciated hearing that you were
glad to have gotten experience here before teaching overseas...
It just seems like now is the time to do such things... there seems to
be such an emphasis put on getting tenure- expecially in the
area I am student teaching in. Sometimes I'm led to believe
that once you're in there, you can't leave to do something
like teach abroad. Anyway, all that aside, your response made
me see things in a different light. I still would like to
pursue the idea of teaching abroad, but at the same time, I
realize the benefits of teaching here! thanks...
