Luis Tobon – 2018-2019, ETA, Ecuador
Mi nombre es Luis Tobon and I was a #Fulbright #ETA in a small high school in the parish of #Alangasi, in the outskirts of Quito, #Ecuador this past year!
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was very young, living in #Colombia, where I grew up (#Paisa). After going to high school and college in #NewYork I decided I wanted to be an English teacher. I graduated from @stonybrooku with a bachelor’s degree in English Education (7-12) and began working at a bilingual high school in #Brooklyn where I taught ELA to Latinx immigrants until I traveled to Ecuador to begin my #FulbrightExperience.
After being there for almost 9 months and enjoying every moment I worked teaching English at my school, I’ve decided to pursue a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (#TESOL) and acquire double certification (ELA/ENL) now that I'm back in the U.S. Check out my educational/teaching blog LTTeaching.wordpress.com to read about some of my teaching adventures during this amazing experience with @the_fulbright_program and beyond!
