Back in 2014, I had the brilliant idea of moving to Italy to teach English, thinking I would stay for a few years, travel and then move on to something else career-wise. Little did I know that the world of ELT would suck me in and keep me in the industry!
Kicking off in Bologna, I began teaching young learners, teens and adults, in between stuffing my face with the mouthwatering food that Italy is famous for (Tortellini alla panna is my favourite!). Soon after, I got word of a Delta Module 1 course and immediately jumped at the opportunity. Seven months of study later, I finished Module 1 – a whirlwind of emotions – and immediately started Module 3, a further seven months of studying and writing. Then, seeking a change of scene, I decided to pick up and move to the Almeria, a small town in the south of Spain! Here, I discovered tapas and, needless to say, my waistline suffered slightly. I then took Module 2 via distance – another emotional and developmental rollercoaster.
Currently, I work as the teacher trainer for McGinty School of English as well as freelancing as a teacher trainer for Cambridge University Press. When not working, you’ll generally find me either running or on the beach soaking up the sun.
