Teach In Spain Program

Hi everyone! My name is Megan and I am excited to be blogging through CIEE this year. I’ll tell you a little about myself while I wait in the airport on my long layover. I am 24 years old. I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. I went to SUNY Geneseo for college and studied International Relations with a minor in Political Science during my time there. I’ve always enjoyed writing and have journaled every day for the last 6 years. This will be my first time sharing my writing, outside of college classes!

For the last year and a half (since graduating college), I have worked a few jobs, my favorite being lifeguarding, and the most recent being a calendar coordinator at a law firm in Buffalo. I am unsure what I would like to do in my career long-term, so what better time to move abroad and teach English than right now!?

I have been to a few countries in Europe before, but never Spain. My favorites so far are Croatia and Austria, but I have a feeling Spain is about to take the number one spot. I am hoping to do a decent amount of traveling while in Spain, since flights are cheaper now that I’ve crossed the Atlantic! I am excited to begin sharing my adventure with you and hope you enjoy reading along. More to come!
