Gillian Haddon travelling in Vietnam

"I completed my graduate Diploma in Teaching in December 2010. Getting my first teaching job took a little time, as it does for most people, but for the first year after graduating I was entitled to a graduate search for work visa, so while I looked for a teaching job I worked in an office

"After 6 months I moved from Christchurch to Auckland to start a 6 month maternity cover teaching job. After that I was successful in getting my current job at an international school where I've been ever since. It's just coming up to two years teaching, so I will be officially qualified which is great. I'm currently thinking about how next to progress my career. I still love New Zealand and am using the school holidays to travel. I've just come back from Vietnam, which is great experience for a geography teacher."
