Student Experiences: Queen's TORF Launched my International Career

December 12, 2018
By: Sarah Taylor

My name is Sarah Taylor and I am a former Queen's Concurrent Education grad who grew up in the charming city of Kingston, Ontario. Having attended university in my hometown, I was always itching to experience the world of international education and haven't looked back since.

For the past seven years, I have been living in Brussels, Belgium teaching Middle School English at the International School of Brussels. One of my favorite aspects of working alongside my grade 7s, 8s, and 9s is watching them develop their own voices as writers as they learn to borrow author’s craft inspiration from the varied voices we read and analyze.
