TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello! My name is Ilinca and I’ve been a kindergarten teacher in English/bilingual kindergartens for over ten years. Teaching is my passion and I hope to make your teaching experience easy and fun with the resources that I create! I've been sharing teaching ideas and parenting tips on my blog: www.grumpydumpling.com. Stop by for some freebies and fun resources.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer the child-centered approach to teaching: children learn better if they actively participate in the learning process, not just by observing what the teacher is doing.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have been a kindergarten teacher for ten years. I have a bachelor in English and Finnish Philology, a master in British Cultural Studies, and a bachelor in Preschool and Primary School Pedagogy. I love teaching English to kindergarten kids.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

From time to time, I will also post resources for toddlers and babies, because I create them for my daughter. If they're a hit, then I will post them here. :)

Teachers Pay Teachers is an online marketplace where teachers buy and sell original educational materials.
