TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Welcome to my Access English store! 'Access English' was formed in 2011, when I 'went solo' having spent over twenty five years in various schools as head of faculty, assistant principal and deputy principal. I now work in a consultative capacity, helping schools develop their practice, and write resources for schools and colleges. I have written five text books for Pearson Education, which have been sold in many English speaking countries around the world, so I have lots of experience in writing, adapting and tailoring resources for English Language Arts classes in different countries. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions (or criticisms), or if you would just like to befriend a very excited English teacher who is being newly inspired by the wide world of TPT.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to think that my classroom is a place where students can discuss ideas, try things out, be confident about giving and taking advice, while at the same time developing their own individual styles and passions.
