My name is Sharon and I’ve been living in Peru for 5.5 years. During that time I’ve been on various visas, from volunteer-diplomat, to tourist, to marriage. I finally stopped the need for visas when I became a Peruvian citizen last year. I applied to be a Global Blogger because I thought it would give me the chance to tell others about what it’s like to teach in Peru. Peru doesn’t seem to be a popular TEFL destination, like China, Korea, or Mexico, but I still think it’s important for people to know what it’s like to live here.
I’ve also worked in my schools. I’ve taught in two universities, a secondary school, a primary school, an institute, and private lessons. When I first came to Peru I couldn’t find much information about living or teaching here, so I’ve made it my goal to help those wanting to come or those already here in Peru. That’s the main reason behind The Ultimate Peru List (www.theultimateperulist.blogspot.com) and TEFL Tips (www.tefltips.blogspot.com).
