Welcome
Hello!

Welcome to my personal website.

My name is
Laura and I am an ESL / EFL teacher. I have been working as a teacher in different institutions and with different age and level groups in Argentina.

My passion? To observe, to create, to innovate and to teach. My aims and future objectives? To study abroad, to keep on working for the university and to be able to open my own language institute. My goals? Lots of them! But above all... never ceasing to learn. My motto? The task of the trascendental teacher is to stimulate "apparently ordinary" people to unusual effort. The most challenging assignment is not to identify winners: it is to make winners out of ordinary people.
