Teacher at Large motto 'learning along the way'
Introduction
I teach English as a subject and as a second language, I love teaching and I am continuously looking for ways to engage students into becoming active learners of life rather than passively wasting precious time at school. 
I believe in Technology as a means for improving education, I also teach online live classes.
I am documenting my latest learning achievements on my YouTube channel and my Blog, please feel free to drop in and leave a comment. Thank you.

5 Ways to Bring Mindfulness Home | Mindful
www.mindful.org

Connecting with your family is crucial to everyone’s well-being. Here are some things to keep in mind as you make the effort.

What a wonderful relaxing spa in the middle of the beautiful countryside, little did I realize it was just so close to home. I had a great morning of total relax sharing the moment with a very dear friend on a girls day out. The staff are very courteous and helpful, all topped with a soft undercurrent of music to truly unwind after a long work week. I can highly recommend! Well a little disappointed on my second visit (17 Aug 2015) here, the Spa staff were exceptional but not so the hotel staff for lunch and not to mention the lunch itself a hefty price tag of €81.00 for a plate of cold cuts for 3 persons!! My international guests were also a little disappointed too.
