Creating lessons that create avenues to participation, fun and interaction. When I create lessons, I really do it with love, like they are all little pieces of creative me. When applicable I compose and add music and frequently update files to add even more bits that I think make the lessons special. I really would love for that to shine through about my work. You may have to wait a long while for 20 lessons to get make their way in to my store as I am very particular and spend weeks creating ideas...but I can assure you I put in my all to create activities I am proud of.
Handling classes of 60 students day in and day out for 7 years :-) On a serious note, have won several teacher awards over the years at my current job...but they are all written in Chinese and I can't remember the exact titles of the awards :-)
