I’m an ESL professor from Ontario, Canada. Approximately — years ago, when working in adult education observing the motivation I saw amongst learners, I abandoned studying law and took up teaching. Since then, my work experience has included settlement language programs as well as local school boards and colleges. My classroom approach is eclectic but strategic, and I’ve been told that I have a special brand of enthusiasm. Observing the progress of learners in my classroom is a source of inspiration; it is also essential for me to draw on collaboration with colleagues and my PLN. My current interests in SLL include anything tech-related in adult education and instructional design.
