Albert Tierney is living the dream teaching TEFL in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica!

We have just received an update from our December 2015 graduate Albert Tierney who has been teaching at Hermosa Valley School in Santa Teresa. We love hearing from our graduates and Albert is no exception.

Here’s what Albert had to say:

I teach English in grades 1-5, and a couple of Physical Education classes at Hermosa Valley School in beautiful Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. The climate right now is in the dry season, or summer. It is very hot during the day but at night it gets cooler. The school is in a smaller town with some tourism but is a really relaxed environment. I have recently taken up surfing since arriving in Costa Rica and the beaches in this area are known for having some of the best surfing in the country. I also enjoy relaxing on the beach with a book to read and watching the beautiful sunset. There are lots of restaurants and bars in Santa Teresa which I am excited to explore and I plan on exploring nearby places such as Montezuma and Mal Pais. Costa Rica TEFL’s approach has really helped my classroom to be a fun and interactive environment. My experiences have been really helpful at Costa Rica TEFL with preparation for different activities to learn English! Costa Rica TEFL’s approach has really helped my classroom to be a fun and interactive environment.

Sounds like Albert is really enjoying his TEFL experience!
