I have been teaching for around 8 years in UK schools, as well as in international schools in Tanzania, China and Romania. Because of this experience, I am interested in making resources that teach my students about other countries, as well as resources about festivals, celebrations and special days. I also enjoy writing short children's stories, so you may see some of those uploaded from time to time.
