Dan Henrickson (Head TR and Co-owner of Teach ESL Korea): Was tired of working 60+ hour weeks in Canada and knew there was more to life than this. After a few years of watching his closest friends experience what Korea has to offer, Dan convinced his amazing wife Aggie to embark on an adventure of a lifetime…with their 8-month-old son, Jordan! They spent almost 2 years teaching in a variety of settings and thoroughly loving the Korean culture, food and people. They even went back for 6 months in 2011 with Jordan (now 8) and Benji (4) to enjoy it once again. Dan has been a tireless worker for teachers for the last 6 years and can’t imagine doing anything else.
Aggie Henrickson (Visa Rep – VR, and Co-owner of Teach ESL Korea): Not only is Aggie a sounding board for all of Dan’s (sometimes crazy) ideas, she also plays a vital role in the daily operations of Teach ESL Korea. She currently takes care of each and every teacher from the moment their job is confirmed, through the entire E2 visa process, until they land in Korea. We constantly hear teachers singing Aggie’s praise saying they don’t know how they would’ve ever smoothly completed the complicated E2 visa process without her support.
