My name is David and I'm a teacher trainer. Find out more about me on my page or portfolio site. Very interested in all sorts of teaching discussions and bettering myself in teaching. Particularly the use of internet and computer technology in the classroom. Passionate about ideas and the future!
My name is Michelle and I'm a high school teacher from Brazil. I have decided to become an English teacher because I love this marvelous language and also because I like dealing with people, especially teenagers. I have been teaching English for eight years and during this period I have learned a lot about the language and also about teaching. I started talking about why I have decided to become an English teacher because being a teacher has changed my life. I used to be a very shy person who was petrified about talking in front of an audience. But when I was an English student, attending classes, an intense desire of teaching English started growing inside me and I couldn’t resist it. Now it is my role to keep studying and improving my teaching abilities.

My name is Greg, from the States and just settling in to teach in Korea.
Hope to get lots of tips and resources. Hope to contribute what I can too. Also need to learn a bit about technology and education - looks good here!
Hi everyone and thanks for the warm welcome!
I've been teaching English as a foreign language for 16 years now. I've been teaching English and Serbian online for the past 4 years. I'm passionate about creating digital teaching materials and language learning sites, as well as figuring out how to make the most of the various language learning sites and tools to engage my students so that they don't notice they are "learning" :)
I'm updating our testimonial page. Please, if you have the time, leave one, either on the page or through the Facebook comment there. Thanks and Happy 2012 to all!
My name is Lindsay. I teach English to international professionals in Boston and New York. I am also currently implementing cross-cultural training as a service for our students. I am passionate about cultural awareness, cross-cultural communication and the connection between language and culture. I look forward to sharing resources and exchanging ideas. Thank you!
We now have a nice Welcome page so members can get the full idea of what's on offer.
Also, a lot of members are now discussing on our LinkedIn - ELT Professionals Around The World group. I'll be thinking of ways to integrate this into our community here.
Happy teaching and learning.
How did you get all those people to participate, David??
The discussions I checked out were great
I missed your reply and just noticed it in one of my not visited much gmail accounts.
You know me, if at once I don't succeed, I try try try try try try again. It's about not coveting (this place) and going where the action is. What's important is the connecting and not the control. But good that the LinkedIn is growing, we get about 200+ members a week, so it'll soon surpass here - however, this place will be where teachers can escape the blabla and get the goods. Just the way its worked out - different from out haydays of 2009 - 2010...
I'll email you soon about the work I'm doing with EnglishCentral. Also want to hear your news. I'm heading for 2 weeks alone to the Bahamas - to work on that book (you know the one!). I'm realizing how important this time for self is... I'll give you a report on that sojourne soon.
