Sally, Teacher

Sally, Teacher

Hello, my name is Sally and I’m from Southend, Essex.

I trained to be a teacher of art in 1997 and taught art in Bristol and Southend. When I studied art, I did an Erasmus in Barcelona. After that I always dreamed of coming back. I trained to be an English teacher in 2003 and was able to make the dream a reality. I enjoy working with children because I can get them involved in imaginative projects. I love teaching English because it’s a job which is about communication and listening to others. I enjoy teaching grammar and helping students to improve their English through plenty of practise in a friendly environment.

I love travelling and I have lived and worked in Hong Kong as well as Spain. These places and their inhabitants are very different. I’m interested in working with people and finding out more about their customs and habits. People are fascinating and we can always learn from different cultures. I have also just become a qualified Art Therapist.
