Having worked specifically in ESL for more than 15 years, it's been a great pleasure to have worked with students from many different backgrounds, cultures and countries. Year 1: Neophyte. Year 3: Not bad. Year 6: Senior Teacher. Year 7: DOS. Year 9: Language School Owner. Year 12: Author: Classroom Hero Grab-and-Go Lessons.
As with most CELTA trained teachers - my lessons are communicatively driven and heavily based upon humanistic principles. I personally prefer engaging, creative and fun lessons which facilitate a rewarding and productive lesson experience.
