So here’s the story, in my words: Beginning in September I will be taking a 10-month leave of absence from Deloitte to work at a private high school in Guatemala City! It's a special circumstance, and although temporary, it fits in with what I love to do: consult and teach with technology. Here are my main reasons for going:
- The experience is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: living overseas for a year, learning a new culture, switching careers drastically while retaining the option to return to Deloitte in the summer of 2005.
- It will be a chance for me to have a unique shared experience with my girlfriend Rebecca, who is currently teaching kindergarten down there.
- If I can correctly frame it such that it supports my story, it will help differentiate me on business school applications.
