TESOL | Peace Corps Volunteers

Marissa Klein

"After completing my BA in English literature at Stanford University, I knew I wanted to teach abroad, but I also knew that I wanted to make sure I had enough background and coursework under my belt to be successful and get the most out of my experience. The MIP at AU threw me into practical, hands-on classes right away, and I feel like I will have a solid grounding in TEFL when I begin my Peace Corps assignment in China. It's also nice that the MIP will give me something to come back to when I finish my service, when I return to AU to complete the last of my coursework and projects. I cannot wait to begin my service abroad and look forward to seeing where the Peace Corps and AU take me next!"
