Congratulations you must be very pleased with yourself.
I am 37, finished CELTA a few months ago, have just got a job in Italy and I leave next week.
We had quite a range of ages in our class from mid 20's to mid 40-50's and they were not the only ones. I saw quite afew older people doign CELTA where I went.
I have faced the face that this is a career change and for that reason I do not think I will start at the top. That being said, from talking to people who have stayed long term, they teach privately, open their own schools as there is more money without the middle man.
Certainly one of the trainees with me, developed great rapport in her mid 50's with young adults and I think one of the reasons was because she did not try to be young and groovy, just genuine.
You would be attractive as a teacher as you are mature, you turn up, older students will be more comfortable with you and a bit more world experience.
I know financially it will be tricky and I am prepared for that, my main aim is to learn and develop my school as much as I can in the first year and then investigate what to do from there.
If you are enthusiastic, motivated and genuine, you will be fine. Personally get a little of sick of people in exotic locations telling me how hard it is, how little money there is, and yet...they dont come home. It is almost liek they want it all to themselves.
Where do you plan on going? Are you plannin gon RTW for a year or to relocate somewhere?
