|I am an Irish woman living on a beautiful Greek island with my Greek husband and four children, including twins, aged between six and one. I have been teaching esl/English for fifteen years, with experience in primary , secondary schools, language, and literacy institutes in Ireland, though the majority of my experience has been in Greece.
I studied English literature and history in University before going on to take the higher diploma in education, which is the teaching qualification in Ireland. After moving abroad, circumstances led me into the esl field, which has entailed continuous professional development and opened up new interests and opportunities.
My predominant teaching interests include:
creative curriculum development,
use of games, music and multimedia in esl
different learning styles,
technology in education
As a mother of four bilingual children, I have also developed a keen interest in bilingual literacy and I am passionate about raising my children to develop the linguistic competence of a well-educated native English speaker.
Raising multiple toddlers has got me interested in child development too, and how language learning takes place at that age.
My other main interests are art, which helps me to create fun quality time with my children and add colour to my language lessons,
and travel, which explains the Greek husband!
My goals for the future are to:
run an online English language service
Write children's books
Write esl books
I am a professional English Language teacher from Ireland, and have been teaching for fifteen years. I hold a degree in English Literature, history, a Higher Diploma in Education, and T.E.F.L qualifications.
