I love to teach and I love to learn. Over the years I've created hundreds of fun activities that make learning easy. We tried them out over and over again in the hallways, in the garden, in the street and yes, even in the classroom. Many are posted on this blog, "Shakespeare slept here." Many of you may have participated in them. 
I've always been both a teacher and a student in San Francisco, in Mexico and in Madrid. I was an English teacher at UEM for 18+ years. Now I'm happily retired and on to the next adventure.

School is almost out. You're getting your last projects finished up, doing your last presentations, and taking those final exams, if you're a student, that is. Some of you might be professors who are even busier reviewing those last projects, listening to those presentations, correcting those final exams. And many of you are finishing up your English course too.

Simultaneously, however,you're planning for your summer vacation. You deserve one. You've worked really hard and now it's almost time to relax.

You've got an interview! And it's in English! "HELP! ¡¡¡Ayúdame!!!"
Calm down! Take a deep breath! You CAN DO this!

You speak English. You've been studying it for years. "But....but.. ay, qué nervios!"

Teachers, professors, mentors, advisors, trainers, coaches the world over often wonder what happened to their students. Did they go on to do advanced degrees? Did they get the training they needed to become leaders? What happened to the quiet girl, the straight A student, the class leader, the lost students who just needed a helping hand? Did the aspiring medical student become a surgeon? Did the one with a facility for languages travel the world? What about the one who was always helping others? Did she become a social worker?

Every April for several years now we have had an activity called "I can make a paper airplane, can you? This idea came from the Red Bull International Paper Airplane Competition which I'd heard about on the radio.
