Great to hear from you! I hope all is well and I'm sure the weather is nicer for you than here in Korea! Cold today -5!
Wonderful that you will consider sharing with other teachers! It's very easy. The simplest thing to do is to go to our Resources Share area. Find a category that suits the materials or just go to General Teaching and start a discussion titled "Kelly's Materials" or something like that. Then say a few words about them and upload them. You might even start a conversation on the main page forum just telling others more directly that they are there - that is really helpful. If you have a lot of materials for one discussion, you can upload 3 and then during edit, upload more when the blank icon appears. Click that to upload more documents...
Hi Kelly! Thanks for the nice comment, but I don't think David's "shout out" really means I am teacher of the month :). It's a nice thought, though. I had fun scrolling through your web page too- what pretty and intelligent looking students! Are all your students advanced, or do you teach beginning English also? I'd be interested in seeing what materials you use with your advanced students- maybe you could post some of them on EFL? I am creating materials for teaching beginning English online... you can take a peek here or there...
My daughter, who travels a lot, loves Brazil. She had one of the nicest times of her life there (she was in love, it is easy to have a nice time when one is in love!) I thought we all might end up going there for a wedding, but she changed her mind :)
A big hello to Brazil! Your webpage looks great and I enjoyed scrolling through it and finding out about your students and school....I'll post shortly in our member's blog directory for others to find...
