I am NOT just an English teacher.

A new mantra.

How many times have you heard an English teacher say: “I’m just an English teacher”? Maybe you have even said it – or thought about saying it. This talk is aimed at that. It is about how we are educators above all and how we meet challenges, obstacles and opportunities. Our outlooks and possible outcomes. It is about what it means to be a teacher – and a good one!
