Yes, I created this site. Only because I think the technology is superb and it beats all the old chat board stuff. There was also a need for EFL teachers all over the world to have a meeting place that was friendly, shared and of which they have ownership.
So though I created it -- I don't own it! It is OURS. I started the fire but after that, we all can find warmth here and we can all add wood to keep it burning!
Thanks Amanda. Just giving back. Teaching has been good to me and I've gotten so much more than I've given.
However we can make the site better, let me know. I"ll be changing the Batcave site in the new year with a lot more resources and dynamic searching etc....in the meantime, we have the conversation here. I'll be doing more promoting than I have up to now but let others know what's available.
Thanks for having me as one of your members here, i found it very beneficial especially to a student teacher like me.You are very kind and very talented to have this kind of group. You really have a heart in teaching.
More Power and God Bless You always.
Regards to all your staffs too. More Power to everyone!!
