I have taught Spanish, English as a Foreign Language, Classical Studies (Ancient History) and Music for over 7 years. I am currently working in an edtech start up to brush up on my tech skills! But am returning to the classroom to bring these skills to my students and fellow teachers.
I believe in a mixture of styles is important. All students are different, so a variety of instruction, collaboration and creation are the way to go for me! Student centered learning is important, but I do think there is room for some good explanation done by the teacher. This can be done in class or through a flipped video lesson!
Yet to be added
I studied Spanish and Greek and Roman Civilization at Undergraduate level in Ireland. Subsequently I have acquired a Masters in Hispanic Studies, a Postgraduate Diploma in Education and I am currently coming to the end of my second Masters, this time in Education Technology at the University of Nottingham, UK. I am a CELT certified ESL teacher and I have also studied piano for many years!
I am from Ireland but currently live in Boston, MA with my fiancé. I love languages and teaching and learning in general. I am a lifelong learner! However, my first love in life is music. Viva la música :)
