In Response To: Re: Anxiety (Irishman)

Hi Irishman,

I am Irish-Canadian and was in Ireland for most of last summer and just absolutely loved it. (Can't wait to go back sometime!)
I am now preparing to move to China (or another country) to teach English. I also have trouble with social anxiety. I am shy at a party (verey unirish of me) yet I enjoy being in front of a group.
I did a TESOL certification years ago, but have not taught large groups much, so I am hoping things will go well in the classroom.
I figure that if I just take one of the Chinese government jobs in a public school, I will be forced to overcome my fears and that is what will make me do it. I do not know if I am a born teacher or not. I do not know how I will get through the first two weeks or so. I am also considering the private schools with small classes, yet something is telling me that jumping in is the only way to learn.
