I am Wendy Marie Crews,54, from Wisconsin U.S.A. I live in Costa Rica. I am Swiss, Irish and German, have blue eyes and curly hair. I have a 160hour TEFL Certificate from Full Circle in London, and a Certificate of Community Interpreting from Viterbo University in Lacrosse Wisc. I have taught ESL to adult farm workers and their families one season in California. Also the last 6 months I was teaching Spanish online to 13 year olds. I beleive in a student centered classroom. One where students have choices. The choices empower the students to direct their own learning. Studies show we store knowledge according to meaning. Discovering what has meaning, to students, finding a point of interest/knowledge. I value all efforts that failed as greater than not having tried. Classes I have taught; Stick-frame construction for women, Firewood basics for women and Non-toxic home and self care. I can inspire students to be Life Long Learners because I am a Life Long Learner.
