I have been a teacher and a teacher trainer for over twenty years. My career has allowed me to live and work in countries such as Spain, Portugal, and Ecuador. These experiences were vital to my continued development as an English teacher and trainer. I am currently interested in increasing learner autonomy in classes and online course creation. In my free time I enjoy cycling and walking my dog in the county. I also enjoy watching and reading science fiction and horror.
