These twelve inspirational quotes for teachers (shown below) should inspire you to give back to your community.
Giving back can mean different things to different people. It can come in the form of giving time, resources, and donations to their families, friends, schools, charitable organisations, and communities. To others, it is a sense of appreciation for everything others did for them and wanting to do the same for someone else as much as everyone did for them.
What does giving back to your community mean?
Generally, giving back is investing time and resources to help people. It can be as little as helping someone cross the street or providing a shoulder to lean on to someone hurting. Regardless of how much you can do, one thing is sure; the world is a better place when we all give back to society.
Many of us have contributed to charities and donated money to them. It just feels great to help others, especially children, through volunteer TEFL or TESOL work. Volunteer work teaching English to children in less favourable backgrounds is essential because it gives back to the community.
Sometimes you don’t have to go too far. There are community colleges where free ESL classes help immigrants in your country. Build up your TEFL and TESOL work experience with these volunteer work projects.
When you apply for your TEFL or TESOL job, employers give a lot of importance to these volunteer TEFL and TESOL jobs. As a result, you give back to society and help yourself get to a stage of high employability in your TEFL career.
