Although I've only had a few opportunities to provide English-language training while serving in my current position in the U.S. Air Force, I believe that Regent's M.Ed. in TESOL program has equipped me with valuable tools that I will be able to use in the future.
If the Lord wills, I would like to help work in an orphanage or children's home in Central America. I've visited there a number of times, and have wondered how I could help with some of the spiritual and physical needs. After noticing that there were many adults and children who wanted to learn English, I started to see teaching as a tool that could be used to help meet practical needs, develop relationships, and most importantly, share the love of Christ.
I found Regent's School of Education to be a place where I could obtain some of those practical skills needed to help others. The TESOL curriculum included a good balance of instruction in reading, writing, and conversation skills that I can apply with adults or children. The training in cross-cultural servanthood and character education will prove useful as well. My Regent experience was made more meaningful by faculty members who provided valuable insights, support, and opportunities to apply biblical principles throughout the program.
I still don't know exactly what the path ahead looks like, but I feel that my time at Regent has helped prepare me for the future.
