Despite the uncertainties brought about by the pandemic, teacher Jocelyn Frans comes home from overseas to a rewarding teaching life with 51Talk.
The pandemic impacted not only precious lives but also the livelihoods of many. Even some OFWs like teacher Jocelyn Frans had no choice but to return to the country. Fortunately, despite the uncertainties brought on by this new challenge, teacher Jocelyn Frans has found new hope and her new home with 51Talk.
However, the journey was not easy for teacher Jocelyn Frans. For several years, she lived with her husband and worked as a part-time teacher in Shanghai, China. Since last year, they had already been working on moving back to the Philippines. However, they suddenly needed to fast-track their plans and return due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in China.
Coming back immediately to the country meant losing their jobs overseas and having to find a way to make ends meet here back home. Since the start of the pandemic, teacher Jocelyn Frans wanted to earn a source of income without compromising her and her family’s health by regularly going outside for work. This meant that her only choice was to look for remote work.
Fortunately, teacher Jocelyn Frans has years of teaching experience under her belt, so she searched for available online teaching jobs. That’s when she discovered 51Talk. For her, 51Talk was a good fit for her background, because, as she put it, “Since I have experience teaching children in Shanghai, 51Talk is a good avenue for me to continue what I love doing in the comfort of my home.”
Fast forward to five months later, and teacher Jocelyn Frans is now helping support her family while working in a fulfilling industry inside the safety of her home.
Aside from financial stability, working with 51Talk has helped her stay sane during the pandemic. After being away from her loved ones for three years, she has realized that she really needed to be with her family. She is thankful for the opportunity to have so much quality time with them right now.
In addition, her students keep her pressing on every day. For teacher Jocelyn Frans, seeing the smile on her students’ faces is priceless. Whenever her students learn every lesson, she feels motivated, a universal feeling that all educators share.
Looking back, teacher Jocelyn Frans says, “Teaching at 51Talk is something that I am proud of. I can say that switching to 51Talk is one of the best decisions I made in my life as it opened the possibility of earning and providing for my family in the comfort of our home. I have no regrets, and I continue to strive to be a better teacher every day.”
With 51Talk, teacher Jocelyn Frans did not have to start over and look for new work opportunities. She was able to continue doing what she knew and loved while being in the presence of her family.
