SARAH WILKINSON| SENIOR TEACHER, SHANGHAI KIDS CENTER
"At EF, we tend to share the same sense of adventure and community. We talk about new places to visit and things to do. Being a teacher is not a desk job. It’s hectic and can be hard work, but also fun. There's something that surprises me every day working in China that I know I wouldn't find anywhere else."
