Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and think/talk about 2015 and reflect on the good (professional moments). As teachers, we often tend to focus on the bad and forget about the good. So today ( and please don’t take this as a toot toot/boasting post), I wanna mention some good things. Things that put a smile on my face.
First though I will start with 2014. That’s when I shut down my language school. I had put so much effort into something that did not work out. It was a failure. I spent the end of 2014 thinking about all the things I could have done/changed.I was so sad (professionally).
I got my Delta (finally).
You guys wrote many #youngerteacherself posts which was amazing. It even became conference topics which is mindblowing. Something that started in Greece ended up being talked about in Korea!
I went to conferences and I got to meet people from my PLN in person!That is what I love about conferences.
I got the IATEFL BESIG Maria Keller 1st time speaker scholarship which meant that I went to my first Besig conference in Barcelona and it was great.
I had a lovely summer in the UK teaching EAP at Sheffield University/ I got to travel a lot around the UK and went to Camridge (which is really beautiful and you have to go if you haven’t).
I’d like to thank you guys for reading my wacky posts. I am not a mega giga blogger, but you guys stick by me, and I really appreciate it.
For 2016 I have a few things on my mind. So, here goes:
Have a Happy New Year everyone!I wish you all the best. I hope you have good times. Better times. Lots of love, joy and healthy moments.Remember when you’ve tried and it’s not working, let it go. BUT shoot for the stars. Even if you don’t think you can do it, but you wanna try, go for it! Take risks and don’t worry about flops! I have had my share of flops and am still standing! Stay safe everyone.

Lovely memory of IATEFL BESIG in Sitges. Was great seeing you there!
