GET TO KNOW YOUR TEACHER LIZ
===============================================
NAME:- Elizabeth (Liz)

WHERE DO YOU LIVE? - England (UK)

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 5 WORDS? - ‘Outwardly innocent, but inwardly knowing’.

WHERE IS THE MOST INTERESTING PLACE YOU'VE TAUGHT? - That would be a one-to-one in a young Italian man’s flat in southern Italy. When he invited me to teach him at his home, I stupidly thought that Mamma would be there cooking the lunch, but no, it was a bachelor pad and no sign of Mamma! I eventually left having learned more about Italian customs than he had learned English!

WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF IN YOUR TEACHING CAREER? - My proudest achievement was when a couple of very naughty teenage Belgian students were sent here to England to learn English. They had been expelled from several schools in their own country and this was their last chance to prove themselves. After a few months of playing around in different levels, and coming close to being expelled again, they eventually ended up in my FCE class. Now they had two chances – respect their teacher and learn something or go back to Belgium. Well, they did go back to Belgium but not before they had passed their FCE! They became my two favourite students of all time. I love a challenge!

HOW MANY STUDENTS HAVE YOU TAUGHT? Over 10 thousand

WHAT'S YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING TEACHER MOMENT? - It happened during a DELTA observed lesson. One of my students happened to suffer from Tourette’s syndrome. Of course, I had no reason to worry, I had mentioned the fact in my lesson plan, and anyway, this student had never caused a problem before. However, today was different. Very different. Upon eliciting the required information from him – not wanting to leave him out – instead of answering the question in his usual fashion, he suddenly exhumed a torrent of swear words from somewhere deep within himself. After this cathartic experience he looked very pleased with himself but, unfortunately, this was not really the answer I was looking for. Everything went quiet, I looked over at the examiner who looked rather shocked. It certainly wasn’t your run-of-the-mill DELTA exam! BUT I passed!
