Since the holiday period started, I am aiming at revising my to-do-as well as not-to-do list during the summer. There happens new opprtunities for TD and PD courses what's more most of them are well grounded for any teacher who wishes to "upgrade" themselves in their areas. In my case, I'll be calming down for two weeks, then I will continue my PD. Summer starts but a teacher's hectic life never ends. This is my 6th year in my profession so there are lots of things I should develop with my teaching. That's the reason why a teacher should never cease learning more. Collaboration and contribution should be prolonged amongst the teachers so that we can all "upgrade" to the next levels of teaching for the sake of a better education for the kids. I wish a very fabulous summer for all hard-working teachers!
So, I'm new to this network- hello! I've been teaching English in UK schools for 20 years and am convinced that current practice is not best practice. The curriculum offered seems very limited- very British- and teaching methods remain very 'traditional'. I'd love to hear from anyone with experience in teaching the IB- particularly anyone who's taught both in the UK and overseas. Was the transition tough?
