It’s 2010– a new year!
I think it’s a very good practice to begin the new year with gratitude, remembering all the good things in our lives.
I have many many people and things to be grateful for.
However, since this is a blog and website dedicated to teaching English, here I will focus on my gratitude for the teachers who have helped me become a better English teacher.
I have learned from many great teachers, directly and indirectly, including: Stephen Krashen, Brenda Murphy, Ashley Hastings, J. Marvin Brown, Tony Robbins, Brendon Burchard, John Gray…..
…but the very best teacher I know is Blaine Ray. More than any other teacher, Blaine showed me how to be a great English teacher. He is a true master. And in addition to being a tremendous teacher (in terms of his ability and technique)- he is an extremely warm and generous person.
Quite often, teachers write to me requesting Teacher Training materials, but I always refer them to Blaine’s site.
I am grateful for all I have learned from him (through his books and conferences)…… and hope one day to match his skill and style as a teacher.
