Teaching Teenagers

Teaching Teenagers.


I adore looking at

The guilty smiles,

Hung like fake jewels

On such innocent faces.



Butter would not melt

In their fair mouths.

Because angels in disguise

Only tell innocent lies.



The restless minds

Of impetuous imps,

Brimming with Life

And burdened with strife.



Are a challenge to reach,

And even more

A joy to teach.

I am English and I have been living in Portugal for more than twenty years. I finished my C.E.L.T.A. in 2000 and was immediately employed by International House in Lisbon, where I spent 4 fantastic years improving my skills and gaining experience in different levels, including exam classes. I have simultaneously worked as a writer and a poet for the last ten years and have had my work published in a number of places. I have a huge passion for sculptutre, too and I spend a lot of time organising poetry days and exhibitions in my local area. I left IH to study art and sculpture for one year and then went back to teaching. I have been with my present employer ever since, which is a beautiful school by the sea here in sunny Portugal. I am known for being creative in my lessons and making learning memorable and fun. I also have a great deal of experience teaching P.E.T / F.C.E. / C.A.E. / C.P.E. / I.E.L.T.S / T.O.E.F.L. . The course I have done in creative writing is useful for teaching English, too, especially when it comes to working on the various writing tasks in the exams..
