Hi there! I have over six years of ESL experience teaching in both public and private schools in China. I also have had experience teaching basic international relations courses as a grad student.
I love to be hands on with my students, but Covid really put a wrench in my teaching style! From the Spring of 2020 to the Spring of 2021, I've had to find creative solutions to making my normally in-person English and Drama courses work online. Through much trial and error (and numerous connection issues) we somehow pulled it off! I've created this TpT shop to share some of the materials I've created and used thus far in both my in-person classes and online Zoom classes.
