etp_article This link will lead you to my first publication, which was in the magazine English Teaching Professional, Issue 50, in 2007 . In this article you can read about what I think is a very important issue in the classroom, that of multiculturalism and diversity. Since this is my first posting, I must refer to the person who helped me get the idea for this first one: Ken Wilson (teacher trainer, ELT author, sketch- and songwriter and many many more), who has talked about the issue of culture and teaching in general, as well as travelling on his own fantastic blog (http://kenwilsonelt.wordpress.com). Thank you Ken!
My name is Vicky Loras and I am an English teacher born in Toronto, Canada. I have been teaching since 1997. For ten years, my sisters and I owned an English School in Greece, The Loras English Academy, but I have now moved to Switzerland with my eldest sister, where we have opened a new school, The Loras Network. I believe in teaching as an ongoing learning process, both for the benefit of the students and the teacher. One of my primary educational interests is celebrating diversity in education and languages.
