S4 Ep17 | International School Teaching to Travel the World | Nina Radcliffe

Introducing guest

In today’s episode, we’ll be talking to Nina Radcliffe originally from the UK she  has been living internationally for more than 15 years, now that’s a long trip! Of course Nina has been working during that time as a teacher in an international school in Spain, Thailand and now in Japan. 

Now, Nina is one of my very dearest friends and we became close when she became vegan when we both lived in Thailand. We worked together (I was a teacher at the same school) and due to the very progressive nature of the community there, there were lots of vegans and a lot of people that went vegan in the 6 years I worked there. This was around the time that Seaspiracy came out and teachers started realizing that meat had a very negative impact on the environment and it prompted a lot of conversations about animals and health too. Nina, a woman who has incredibly busy and has so many passions just added being vegan to the list when she discovered the impact diet can make on the planet, her health, and the animals. What can I say, she’s a special person and I am so grateful to have had her as a good friend during my time in Thailand.

I have wanted to have Nina on the podcast for a really long time because I wanted to have a conversation about international school teaching because I think it is a mystery to some, but basically, we are going to be talking about what international teaching is like and how you can get into it. It really is an incredible way to see the world.

During my time as an international educator, I was lucky enough to work in Vietnam (where I first stumbled on this type of teaching as a career)  Indonesia, and Thailand, and had WVT not come along, I would probably be living in another country by now. Not only did help me develop so much as an educator, the opportunities I had, the friends I made I will remember for the rest of my life. The intention of this podcast is to share our experiences and observations of working as international school teachers. Perhaps you are a teacher (or know one) and are looking to branch out. Perhaps you are considering a teaching career then listen in.
