Non-native speaker teachers need to be able market themselves better. Marcel Proust, a French novelist said, “When you work to please others you can’t succeed, but the things you do to satisfy yourself stand a chance of catching someone’s interest.” Working hard is important but simultaneously, non-native teachers need to know how to effectively invest their time. In this presentation, the presenters will explore practical ideas to help non-native teachers compete in the TESOL market.
