Two years ago if you would have told me that I would be living and teaching English in Seoul, South Korea I would have laughed! I don`t think that I could have told anyone exactly where Korea was on the map. Well, it is amazing how that has all changed and here I am, not only experiencing but also living in a foreign country.

The journey called life is very exciting and unpredictable. I grew up in rural Nova Scotia, Canada, with apple orchards, cornfields and cows. I went to Acadia University and graduated with my Bachelor of Business Administration. After working for many years I decided that I wanted to explore the world and voila! Here I am sitting at my computer writing a story for the University of Seoul English Magazine.

Traveling has always been a passion of mine. It has been an opportunity for me to learn about different cultures. Every time I visit a new place I learn about the people, their history, and most importantly their way of life. Each culture offers a diversity of language, food, arts, music, literature, beliefs, and much more. Before I travel to a new destination I always research certain aspects such as currency, climate, health concerns, and overall traveling tips. Education is very important to me and I firmly believe in obtaining a University Degree but there is a lot more to learn than what a textbook has to offer. There are two sayings in Canada, "book-smart" and "life-smart." I think with everything in life there has to be a balance! So, don`t just learn what you have to - learn whatever you want and however you want to.

Last week I taught a lesson from our textbook. The first chapter was called "The Whole World is Your Classroom." Whether you are learning to speak English, to cook, to scuba dive, to play soccer or to dance remember you are your own teacher. And in this journey called life you might end up in places that you cannot even begin to imagine like me! "Education is discipline for the adventure of life" Alfred North Whitehead.
