Reflective Teaching Challenge day 4 – What do you love most about teaching?

Wow, great question, I could ramble on about this for hours, and frequently do, although I’m trying to curb this habit as even my colleagues find me boring!

So, I’ll be brief…

What I love most about my job is the chance to spend all day in the company of hundreds of fascinating people. Not all together at once, thankfully, but in total I have almost a hundred students, and all of them are the most interesting, original people. I love finding what makes them tick, and trying to discover ways of making them love learning English.

I have a lot of great colleagues who think the same way,

I have a lot of independence when it comes to curriculum and book choice,

I get to go on cool school trips, Naples, Edinburgh, local park, via ferrata, you name it, I’m always game,

teaching English isn’t like teaching other subjects, we can do ANYTHING in class if we do it in English, making films, performing plays, etc.

I’m rambling aren’t I?!
