I currently teach in Thailand at a public school to high school level kids. I teach English and Creative Writing to grades 8, 10 and 12. I have been teaching at this school now for over 10 months and will be completing my full year of teaching next month in March.
I have experience teaching both primary and secondary . In both positions I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge while also being able to pass my knowledge of the English language to my students. As part of my job role it is my responsibility to plan and execute fun and engaging lesson plans that allow students to express freely their English language skills in a non-judgemental environment. My aim is to have my students leave my lessons feeling as though they have learnt something new and also elevated on their existing English language skills.
As part of my training during my TEFL Certification, I completed over 160 hours of training both in class and online. The course was invaluable, in that it equipped my with valuable key information which I utilised during my time as a teacher. Combining in-class hours with my training, was a great bonus for me as it gave me first hand experience of what it would be like to teach in a real classroom - something I highly doubt and online only course would have done!
