About me


1932361_10154975944710508_3848276338964652963_nHey! My name is Sam and for the past 10 years I´ve been living on and off in sunny Spain. Well actually that´s not entirely true. I did live in the sunny part of Andalucia but back in May 2009 I somehow ended up getting a job at the opposite side of the country. I travelled there by bus and 12 hours into the journey I was starting to regret it. When I first arrived I was overwhelmed with grey skies and feeling alone without family or friends. The only person I knew was somebody I had never met who was interested in me working in their “Irish pub”. Bad move? Best decision made – EVER. I was hooked before I knew it. I fell in love with Galicia, the people and eventually the food. The girl I first worked with ended up being my sister in-law to be. I found friends, love and family aswell as a career in teaching English.
I have over 5 years experience teaching English to students of all different levels, ages and nationalities. I´m currently living in Santiago de Compostela working at an academy teaching English to both children and adults. I´m always looking for ways to make the classes that I have with the adults just as fun as the ones I have with the kids. I plan to use this blog to share thoughts, ideas and materials about teaching.

¡Hola! Me llamo Sam y durante los últimos 10 años he estado viviendo en la “soleada” España. Bueno en realidad, esto no es totalmente cierto. Viví en la “soleada” Andalucía allá por Mayo del 2009. No sé cómo pero acabé consiguiendo trabajo en el lado opuesto del país. Viajé a Galicia en autobús y después de 12 horas de viaje empecé a arrepentirme. Al llegar me encontré con cielos grises sintiéndome sola sin familia ni amigos. Sólo alguien que no conocía de nada, tenía interés en que trabajase en su Pub “Irlandés”. ¿Mala jugada? La mejor decisión sin duda. Sin darme cuenta estaba enganchada. Me enamoré de Galicia, de su gente y finalmente de su comida. La chica con la que trabajé primero, al final resultó ser mi futura cuñada. Encontré amigos, el amor, familia y una carrera enseñando inglés.
Tengo más de 5 años de experiencia en la enseñanza dando clases a todo tipo de niveles, edades y nacionalidades.  Ahora mismo vivo en Santiago de Compostela y trabajo en una academia dando clases mayormente a niños. También tengo clases de conversación con adultos e intento hacer las clases igual de divertidas. Uso este blog para compartir mis ideas y materiales para la enseñanza.

One thought on “About me

  1. Hi Sam, I like your blog very much. I’m studying to be an English teacher, I have put your BGT lesson into practice and it was great. I’m curious about your lingua worksheets. Are they for share? Let me know if I can access to them.
    Thanks in advances, and congratulations on your work!
