And so we begin...

And so we begin...

I’ve been thinking and planning this for a while. Some of you even heard me talk about it 5 years ago, but I’ve decided that today is the day.  I’m pulling the trigger, making a plan and making this happen.  My life has taken several twists and turns since I first came up with the idea of creating a platform for English Language Teachers (ELTs).  

At first, it was going to be an online class, but where would I put it?  How would I recruit students?  And how would they pay for it when many of the teachers I wanted to help couldn’t afford the professional development they needed? 

Then I decided that I wanted to create a podcast.  This podcast has had several mental variations.  It was going to be interviews with people in the field that I admired, and then it was going to be me reading blogs that other professionals had written (as they do in Optimal Living Daily), and it may include those things, but what I think will be most helpful, is a podcast of teaching tips.  Things I, and other teachers, have learned throughout our careers that I can share with teachers on the podcast and make their day a little easier, but where to start?

So today, I decided to start by writing a blog.  So here it is.  And so we begin…
