Valuable Teaching Experiences

Another place gone and a new one to come,
The time I've spent in Valverde del Fresno despite being short has been really valuable and I will always remember the place, the students and the wonderful workmates that I've met in Val de Xálima.
Now, Badajoz is waiting for me again and there I go! I'll try to do my best till it lasts.

My situation...

My life is a bit busy nowadays, I mean, I'm not working in the same place for the whole year.
So far I've been in Badajoz (Bioclimático High School) and also in Miajadas (CEPA).
Instead of being a disadvantage... I think all these experiences I'm having have broaden my horizons in teaching EFL because I'm facing new groups of students from different origins and with different social backgrounds. Besides, I'm not only teaching teenagers but also adults and that also makes a difference.

Anyway, many times we've seen people complaining about their location,
not working in the same place can be seen as an awkward situation...
but I prefer to look at it in a positive way
and put a smile on my face every single day!
