I Patty Neelakandan, am a South African(Indian) , living in South Africa.
I am currently a Headmistress of a Kindergarten school in the Durban area. I have over 10 years of teaching experience.
My passion is teaching and learning other cultures.
At our school the ages range from 3-15 years old. We are a diverse school where children from all races and cultural backgrounds are welcome. Interacting with them and teaching English and seeing their development is off utmost satisfaction.
My passion in this have now got me interested and yearning to teach across the Globe.
The Reason I love ESL – ESL comes naturally to me due to me living with and teaching the Natives of my country and English not being their first language, so It is inbred in me to teach English as ESL.
Tasked based contextual learning methods are excellent I always relate back to that to make the understanding and teaching easier for the student to be able to construct meaning based on their own personal experiences. I believe anything in like is understood better when related back to our own livies.
