This is a description of my job last year in the United Kingdom. As an American, I wanted to get away for a little while. It’s a great country but I needed a break. So just before finishing up school at UVA, I looked around for jobs that would let me teach out of the country. I also wanted to be an English teacher, so that was a factor. I found a fellowship that sends Americans to England for one year to teach in great English prep schools.
I was a dorm resident in charge of 40 8th grade boys, I taught English, civics, psychology, and current affairs, I coached the cross country team, and I traveled. I also helped out with a Christianity Explored class where some of the boys from our house came to accept Christ into their lives.
