    Hello Sivapriya,

    A very warm welcome to TESOL!

    Glad to learn that you're an English teacher in a school. What level do you teach? Are any language skills priotitized?

    You have a wide choice of interest sections and communities of practice to choose from to suit your teaching context. Do hope you'll make the best of your membership!

    Regards,
    Hari

    Hello Fellow, Educators,
    I love teaching.  It is my passion.   I was an educator in West Virginia, South Carolina and now teach at a College in North Carolina.   In the meantime I lived and worked in Cambodia, Moldova, Russia, and Ecuador.  I have a long history in special education and I truly believe that is why my experience and education are so appropriate for English language learners.  I am looking forward to a new assignment in a new country and immersing myself in the culture.  I truly appreciate the contacts that we make through our professional organizations.

    Hello, Virginia!  You certainly have a lot of experience.  What do you love most about teaching in the U.S. and abroad?

    What do I like most?  Not sure. I really like that I know I am making a difference. Not just a difference in the one student sitting in my class  but for everyone that student touches and beyond. 
    I love watching a face light up when he/she gets itinerary makes that connection 
    I get excited at the creativity that is so valuable to teaching. I appreciate the learning opportunities that flood me when I am teaching and I mean my learnings 
    I guess I could write a book on this 
    Thanks for asking

    Hi Ginny:

    I also enjoy the creative aspects of teaching:  lesson planning, designing activities, and creating materials.  That is when I am most "in the flow."
