À propos de moi

Hello, My name is Deirdre, but everyone calls me Dee. I'm from Ireland originally, and now I'm currently living in Japan. I have been working in the field of ELT since 2007. I have a love for all things of culture, and I am very interested on how languages, as a tool, play an important part in connecting everyone.
I think of myself as vibrant, energetic, positive and motivating in and out of the classroom. I am dedicated to meeting the aims and objectives of both my students and my fellow colleagues. I believe that the experience of education is just as important as the education itself, and I strive to create and deliver a good teaching and learning environment for myself and for my students.
I travel a lot to broaden my mind and my experience. I really enjoy meeting people from other cultures, and I enjoy working with people from different cultures and backgrounds. Everyday is a learning day for me as I continue my journey of teaching English.
