Time Management for Teachers

Time management is a tool that can help you organize yourself, your family and work. Using time management as a tool you will be able to do important tasks stress-free, live a meaningful life and be satisfied with yourself.

I am a working mom of two daughters aged 4 and 9. When I felt exhausted and burned out in my life three years ago teaching 2 lessons per week, I started using time management methods. Gradually, they helped me feel healthier & happier, organize my life and work. Now I teach up to 12 lessons per week, keep a blog, write a book and constantly improve my skills. At the same time I am a normal mom of 2 kids and a wife.

In this session I am going to share my experience of using time management, technology tools I’m using to organize my work. We will work out:

1) what to do when students cancel or postpone the lesson 5 minutes before it starts and how to avoid such situations;

2) how to avoid burnout in teaching;

3) how to reschedule and plan a lesson in 10 minutes using your phone;

4) what doesn’t work in online-courses and where to invest your time;

5) how to organize your day & life - when to work and when to relax, what to do and what not to do:)

She has been teaching English for 12 years (now 28, she started teaching right after she finished school).

Unitive Teaching

Unitive Teaching is the most meaningful and student-oriented method of teaching English to date.

By the tool of the English language, through Speaking and Writing work, we are called to invite our learners to explore what we all wish we had been taught at school (but never were):

- the art of love, happiness, being and human relationships;

- effective communication;

- the power of thinking for ourselves;

- discovering our life purpose;

- creating a fulfilling life experience.

Unitive Teaching draws activities from a broad range of disciplines, such as psychology, epistemology, personal development and self-help, neuroscience, spirituality, philology and psycholinguistics. It is a powerful combination of techniques that stimulate effective language usage and create genuine meaning in both students’ and teachers’ lives.

Using dictations in a classroom

Dictations are very often dismissed in ESL classrooms. Many think it’s a teacher-centered boring activity that neither students not their teacher enjoy. Some might also get terrible flashback from their school time.

This session is designed to prove that dictations deserve a second chance and can come in handy at various lesson staged. It’s a practical workshop where we will take a look at different kinds of dictations and discuss how they to adapt and use them with all ages and levels.
