Hi, I’m Rachael. I teach English as a foreign language and English literature at Lycée Rodolphe Topffer, a small secondary school (with a small primary class) in Geneva, Switzerland. I’m also newsletter editor for IATEFL IP&SEN SIG and both Geneva regional coordinator and Teens & YL SIG coordinator for ETAS (Switzerland).
I already have a blog aimed at my pupils at fabenglishteacher.com, I post the work we do in class for the parents and kids. There are also links to the lessons for the pupils who lose theirs, I’ve noticed those pages get pretty good traffic on Sunday evenings or before tests!
I finished my M.A TESOL with Sheffield Hallam university in 2016 and in 2018 completed a SENCo certificate. I’ve presented quite a few conferences; IATEFL, ETAS (Switzerland), TESOL France in Paris, etc. and also presented a couple of webinars.
The objective of this blog is to complete my PLN by sharing my lesson ideas (and those of other people!) with you, as well as reflections on my lessons and my studies.
Please feel free to comment and share your ideas too!
