We Lived in Prague
Within months of meeting each other in Richmond, Virginia, Lindsey and I decided we needed to see the world together. After a year of planning, we got on a plane and made our way to Prague. That was 2005. We spent a challenging and satisfying 5 weeks going through an intensive TEFL program. Over the next four years, we became ‘proper’ teachers. We saw most of the Czech Republic, and much of Europe. We made friends that we still talk to today. Those friends attended our wedding in a vineyard in Prague 2, just before we left in 2009. SInce then, we’ve moved to Oman, seen a lot more of the world, had two ridiculously lovely children, completed post-grad work, and are always planning our next adventure. We also constantly reminisce about those Czech years, smiling like idiots. Lindsey taught at a pre-school just outside the city, and has gone on to own and operate her own very successful business. I taught lessons for Threshold Training Associates all over town, and for all class sizes and levels. Today, I’m a university lecturer, publishing and presenting all over the world on using Comics in the EFL classroom. Teaching should be a rewarding experience anywhere, but to have been so lucky as to start our careers in a town as gorgeous and exciting as Prague…well, yeah, we were lucky. And we knew it.[ngg_images source=”tags” container_ids=”Robert and Lindsey” display_type=”photocrati-nextgen_pro_masonry” size=”200″ padding=”5″ display_type_view=”default” ngg_triggers_display=”always” ngg_proofing_display=”0″ captions_enabled=”0″ captions_display_sharing=”1″ captions_display_title=”1″ captions_display_description=”1″ captions_animation=”slideup” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]
