Male, GOE Teacher 2016 - My GOE Elementary has been a fantastic experience thus far. I have been able to learn about my co-workers
both in and outside of school. In a very short time I felt well adapted to my environment and work schedule. The students and teachers
make coming to work a positive part of my day each week. I am very grateful for all they have done and to Korvia for allowing me to
have this opportunity. Please feel free to share my praise with the school and others!!!

Female, GOE Teacher 2016 - From the beginning of first email to the the Korvia Party, Ashley was such a help and a blessing!! I had a
really difficult time my first two weeks but Ashley made sure I was safe and that things would be taken cared of. I appreciate Ashley and
her kindness so much. She provided more help beyond what I would've imagined a recruiter would. I love her smile and her friendly

Female, GEPIK Teacher 2016 - Jessie was the one who interviewed me and was very patient throughout the entire process. I only applied
to GEPIK and GOE so my opportunities were limited. My placement was bound to take a little longer than usual. She made sure I knew
that, but otherwise, did not push. Also, the interview itself was a very comfortable process. Believe me, I have had plenty. She smiled and
did not seem distracted by a list of questions somewhere off on the side. She spoke to me in a friendly manner and often inquired about
relevant experiences both in Korea and other countries.
