“I almost lost my love of teaching; I lost hope with the system.”
Jen Foster is an incredibly upbeat, bright, happy person. But as she recalled this moment, her voice showed immense frustration and disappointment at the state of education in the UK.
This was a turning point in Jen’s life. She and her husband, both teachers who were working in admin, knew they had to make a change. They moved to Malaysia, took classroom teaching jobs, and Jen’s rekindled her immense love and passion for her profession. Listen to Jen talking about the fulfillment and happiness this international change has brought about – it may even inspire you to make a drastic change to your career path.
