Let's see, where to begin? I was born and raised in the best city in the world: Los Angeles, California!
And well, my journey teaching English abroad began shortly after receiving my Bachelor of Arts Degree in English from Morehouse College in the spring of 2009.
By Dec. 2009 I landed my first ever teaching opportunity at an English winter immersion camp in Seoul, South Korea. Though only one month's duration, it was this adventure abroad that would forever change my life.
And by 2012, guess what? I'd return to the world of ESL and accept a full 1 year ESL teaching position in China. I know, China!?
Fast forward about 7 years later and I now reside in Shanghai, China where I continue to work as an English teacher for young children.
It's crazy—over the years I've experienced so much. I've learned more than I ever could have imagined about cultures around the world, met people from nearly every corner of the globe, and made dozens of trips across China, it's neighboring regions, and to far away countries like Australia and Dubai.
My journey in ESL has been one heck of an adventure. I've got so many great stories to tell, so many photos and videos for you to see, and so many resources to share.
And with that, I created Don's ESL Adventure as a platform to display any and everything covering my life teaching English abroad, living and working in China, and travels across the world. Welcome to Don's ESL Adventure!
