About Me

I am a native English speaker from Jamaica and graduate of the CELTA certification program with Teaching House Chicago, having completed 6 hours of teacher-in-training lesson time and several more hours observing experienced teacher-led classes. When in the classroom, I really enjoy serving as a facilitator and allowing learners to use the language that they are being taught. That, I find, is a great way for them to learn what they come to learn! I enjoy starting my classes with an engaging discussion topic to get learners locked in. Once I have introduced them to the target language for the lesson, I challenge them to use what they have learned in fun and interactive speaking, writing or listening activities. I also spent time in an environment like this when I learned Spanish as a foreign language. That experience has helped me to understand how to approaching teaching English as a second language.
