About Me

For those that don’t know me, my name is C J Hague. Originally from Goshen, Ind., I am now extremely excited to have the opportunity to live and work in Quito. I graduated from Goshen College in April 2010 with a degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). After graduating I moved to Alaska for four months to work a seasonal job, then moved to Bloomington, Ind. in October of 2010.

Following a goal that I had had for years, I first traveled to Ecuador with WorldTeach to serve as a volunteer English teacher for one year. During that time I lived in Quito, Guayaquil, and Ambato, and taught at two different schools. In that year I first started this blog, and you can easily go back to see posts from my time as a teacher.

I returned to the United States in August of 2012, and promptly moved to Taos, New Mexico, where I found a couple of long-term substitute teaching positions. During the fall semester I worked at Roots and Wings Community School, teaching science, math, and language arts to a combined 6-8 grade classroom. In the spring of 2013 I found a new position at a charter high school – Vista Grande HS – where I taught science and physical education.

During the spring of 2013, I learned that an Assistant Field Director position was open with WorldTeach in Ecuador. Though returning to Ecuador was completely off my radar, I decided to apply anyway…and I was offered the job! After much consideration, I realized that this opportunity was too good to pass up, and I accepted the position. I moved back to Quito in late May of 2013  to begin this exciting new job and phase of my life. Thanks for keeping up with this blog as I reflect on my experiences, my travels, and all the new people I meet.

    • Jaime, I’m glad to hear that you’ve caught up with what I’m doing to here. Things are going very well, though I have to admit that with 3 and a half months here (and especially during the holidays) I feel a bit homesick. However, I’ve got a lot of great things going on here, and a lot to look forward to in the next 6 or 7 months!
      I look forward to catching up with you what I’m back in the states.
