Ep 44 | Life in Colombia & Teaching English Abroad with Kristin Montgomery
Welcome to Season 4 of the She Hit Refresh podcast. A podcast for women age 30 and up who want to break free from routine and start a life of travel. Specifically women who want to move abroad or travel the world long-term. I sit down with women who have made their refresh dreams come true and discuss how and why they moved abroad or hit the road to travel.
In this episode I speak to Kristin Montgomery a teacher from Wisconsin who has been able to take her profession around the world. She is currently living in Colombia and shares her insights on living in Medellin and teaching abroad.
- What it’s been like living in Medellin
- How she started teaching abroad
- Teaching English in Spain (we both participated in Spain’s language assistant program)
- What skills does someone need to find work abroad as a teacher
- How to find opportunities at international schools
- Advice for learning a foreign language
- Anxiety, how it has impacted her travels and how she has overcome it
- and much more!
Kristin is a teacher from Wisconsin whose ever-present wanderlust has taken her to live in France, Spain, Switzerland, and Singapore. She has a love for all things international and has visited over 50 countries and counting! After six years of teaching back in Wisconsin she decided to hit refresh and move to Medellín, Colombia to teach at a bilingual school. She’s enjoying the year-round spring weather and the beauty of the Colombian landscape and people.
