About Me

If you have read my blog and want to know more about me ... please read on!

Where are you from?

The short answer would be the south of England, but this is not strictly true.  I was born in Bahrain, and I've lived in Spain, Scotland and England.  When I worked for First Choice (Tour operator), I was sent to work in Almeria, Tenerife, Malaga, Corfu and Bulgaria! I moved to Brighton in 2008. I had a great time there and met some amazing people (you know who you are)! From there I moved to Alicante to become a teacher.  I got a better teaching position in Toledo with Cambridge English plus, there I spent my days correcting exams, teaching kids and Adults... and now I am residing in Ciudad Real with my husband.

Why did you become an English teacher?

I've always liked the idea of teaching, but I figured it was a good idea to get some life experience before trying to teach. So, that's what I did! I have worked in tourism, insurance, marketing, health and safety, bars and restaurants! Work experience gives you heaps of anecdotes and stories to tell your students about real life!

What is it you do now?

I teach in two places! I wanted the freedom and flexibility to teach English through numerous activities, story telling, playing games, etc.  When you work for just any school/academy/college you teach the same thing day in day out, students get bored of sitting at a desk with a book open in front of them, having done this during school hours as well. Through experience I've learnt that it's easier to learn a language when you actually live it! Kids in Spain learn grammar at school, they know how the language works, but they don't get the opportunity to speak. Mega English & Fantasia give me the freedom to be creative in class, whilst preparing students for Cambridge  exams & work interviews, as ultimately this is the most improtant aspect of my work as an ESL Teacher.
