THE STORY OF ESL TRANSITION: WHAT'S NEXT?
What's Next is a leadership program that allows time and space for an ESL teacher to have a space to curate the next step in their life. Mete is the leadership coach and Ryan is the mentor.
Organic Roots Timeline
December 1st, 2017 - I hear back from California Southern University. I am researching Sports Psychology as a possible career path. I ask for a student in the program to talk with. Mete is selected as the student.
January 16th, 2018 - Mete reaches out and we plan a time to talk on Skype. I only ask questions about the Sports Psychology program and asked a little about Mete's life. I share some of mine.
June 5th, 2018 - Mete randomly reaches out to me and wants to discuss something I talked about. In our conversation months prior I expressed pain points of living abroad and working at a teacher. Not so much for the current situation but for the future. This was part of all the questions I asked long time ESL teachers since day 1.
July 4th, 2018 Mete and I begin working very slowly and steadily on our project.
