"It’s great to work somewhere like EF. Being a teacher can be busy and fast paced, but also fun. On my days off, there's always something to see and do. China is full of surprises that I know I wouldn't find anywhere else. My colleagues have really made me feel at home here. I don't plan on leaving anytime soon."
