Share your teacher story! #ITeachAbroad
Irish educators have been changing the landscape of education worldwide for generations and this is a tradition that continues to this day. With more opportunities available than ever before, teaching abroad offers more scope to travel, integrate within new cultures and discover new skills.
To accompany our exhibition ‘Irish Educators Abroad’ we are collecting stories from Irish teachers working abroad today. We want to hear about your unique experience and why you chose to teach abroad and we’ll share your story with the world. So whether you’re teaching Maths in Chile or English in Dubai, then we’d love to hear from you.
