    Hi everyone! My name is Daniela and I am an EFL teacher.  I had the opportunity to join the TESOL community, and without a doubt I feel very excited to start working and sharing experiences in order to continue growing in this awesome field which is teaching English!
    Since today is December 31st over here, I wish to all of the ones over there a Happy New Year's eve and a happy, healthy and full of love 2021!

    Hello Ilka! thanks for your welcome!

    Regarding teaching goals, I have set some, and one of them is improving my own skills in order to reinforce the knowledge I have as a teacher. Also, I have decided to organize ahead some extra activities (fun warmp up/ ice breakers) in order to have them as back up and in order to use them in classes to add a little touch of fun into the teaching!

    What about you?

    Regards

    Hi Daniela,

    Happy New Year! Welcome to the club. What ages do you teach? Would you open to a collaboration?

    Hi Jesse,

    Thanks for your welcome! I am currently teaching private students because we are in holidays over here. In march I get back to the usual teaching, and mostly I teach teenagers and adults (because I work in an EFL center). I am more than open to collab in case there is an opportunity to do it!

    best wishes!
