Hello and welcome to my site!
My name is Anna. I’m a teacher of English. I like my work, though sometimes it’s a bit too challenging and unnerving, especially if you teach teens.
I created this site for my students and my colleagues. I hope that each of you can find here something interesting and useful.
If you have any questions you can always contact me at anna.vrn@gmail.com
What do you do?
I’m a teacher.
What do you teach?
What do you teach them?
You mean grammar, verbs, nouns, pronunciation,
conjugation, articles and particles, negatives and
interrogatives …?
That too.
What do you mean, ‘that too’?
Well, I also try to teach them how to think, and feel –
show them inspiration, aspiration, cooperation,
participation, consolation, innovation,
… help them think about globalization, exploitation,
confrontation, incarceration, discrimination,
degradation, subjugation,
…how inequality brings poverty, how intolerance brings
violence, how need is denied by greed, how –isms
become prisons, how thinking and feeling can bring
about healing.
Well I don’t know about that.
Maybe you should stick to language,
forget about anguish.
You can’t change the world.
But if I did that, I’d be a cheater, not a teacher.
