               My Professional Life in a nutshell

 

I am an EFL Teacher living in Argentina, the country where I graduated in 1970. I  worked at the Asociacion Rosarina de Cultura Inglesa, a private Institute with 2,500 students of English, the only University of Cambridge Exam Centre in Rosario, second city in Argentina, since 1970 up to 2010

 

I have been teaching English to kids, adolescents and adults at elementary, intermediate and advanced levels. 

 

 In 1980 I was promoted to Area Manager for Kids and Advanced classes.

 

 I am Cambridge Oral Examiner for Kids --Starters and Movers--, as well as for First Certifícate and CAE students, and prepare students to sit for those international examinations.

 

In 1994 I organized and set up the Self Access Centre at the Asociacion Rosarina de Cultura Inglesa, as well as a Language Laboratory, which caters for intermediate and advanced students in the Institute.

 

Having travelled to Cambridge, England, in August 1999, for a course on “The Use of Computers for Language Learning”, by Gavin Dudeney and Gary Motteram, I started doing research on the field, and thus travelled to Barcelona for an ESADE/IATEFL Computer SIG joint event, in July 2000, called “CALL for the 21st Century.”

 

As from then on, I attended different courses and participated in online and f2f seminars, congresses and conferences, both as an attendee and as as a presenter, after joining Webheads in Action, the online Community of Practice aimed at the exploration of Internet Tools for their integration into Language Learning, in 2002.

 

I opened up the Multimedia Centre at Cultura in 1999, and prepared both materials and teachers to start using the computer as a teaching tool, both as a source of information and as a means of communication.

 

Having won a scholarship to present at TESOL in Seattle (USA) in 2006, I started attending TESOL Conferences and was selected a member of the Steering Committee 2009-2012.

 

I became a Google Certified Teacher after a course in New York (USA) in 2008, which allowed me to be  part of a knowledgeable group of educators exploring Google Applications for their integration into Language Learning.

 

I collaborated with "The Techie Page" for the ETI MAG, a paper magazine edited and distributed in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the whole country and Spain, in 2012.

 

In March 2007,  I got a TESOL Convention Award, to attend and present at TESOL in Seattle, USA

 

In March 2009 I was Awarded full Scholarship to attend and present at the TESOL Convention in Denver, USA.

 

Together with Jennifer Verschoor, I coordinated the TICs en el Aula online space for all foreign language teachers in Argentina willing to learn about the integration of Internet tools into their foreign language classes, from 2011 to 2014. We offered and ran presentations, f2f workshops and webinars to educators all across our country for free.

 

TIC en el AULA was shortlisted for the ELTons 2013 in London, England

 

I ran webinars for SBS Argentina from 2014 t0 2017

 

I also gave f2f workshops on the Integration of the Internet for EFL Teachers in English and for Teachers in Spanish, on SBS premises in 2014 and 2015.

 

 

I was selected as a scholarship recipient for WorldCALL 2013 in Glasgow, Scotland, in July 2013.

 

I was the winner of the travel grant for the Digital ELT Ireland 2015 Conference, October 2015 

 

The "Organización de Estados Iberoamericanos para la Educación, la Ciencia y la Cultura" together with Latinamerican Microsoft, with the support of FORO 21 gave me Recognition to an Innovative Educator in Rosario, Argentina, in February 2016.

 



I am now running educational f2f workshops and webinars as a freelance tutor locally and worldwide.
