My name is Sarai and I’m from El Vendrell, Tarragona. Nowadays I’m working in Lockhart Academy (since October) managing three different groups: children of 1st and 2nd of Primary School, adults of A1 level and adults of B1 level. During the week I also work in a school, la Muntanyeta from Bellvei (a town near El Vendrell), managing a group of children of 4th, 5th and 6th grades.
More things about me… When I finished my secondary school I decided to do social BAT, and then I did the Selectivity to be able to go to university. I doubted between doing the degree of Primary School Education or Law. I then remembered that when I was a child my favourite game was to pretend to be a teacher for all my cuddly toys I had at home. I liked it and I like it now very much, and for that reason I can say now that I’m an English Teacher.
About my hobbies I can say that I like playing tennis or paddle, going to the cinema or the theatre and I like a lot the snow and the mountain in winter and the sun and the beach in summer. I also like music, all kinds of music. When I was younger I did 8 years of music theory, singing and I used to play the piano (8 years) and the Spanish guitar (4 years).
About my job I can say that it’s the kind of job that I have been looking for these four years of my degree and the best job to grow in the best possible way with the help of really professional people. I try to teach English in a motivating, interesting and interactional way. We work through projects, and in that sense, through stories, songs and communicative activities where students can work all the skills they have. Of course, I make them speak in English all the time. I like to see how they feel comfortable, and how they enjoy doing entertaining classes of English that are not guided by a book. It’s really fun seeing how they learn while doing funny and interesting things and not only memorizing, but practising and speaking.
