Hello! My name is Denise, Dee for short. After finishing university as a “mature” student (actually only 25 when I started) and doing my TEFL training in London in 1992, I moved to Spain with my then 6-year-old daughter. After 18 years living and working in Spain, where I had my own language school, I returned to the UK late 2009 with my Spanish husband, Jose. We now live in a small rural village in the Teesdale Valley (Durham). During my time in Spain I also worked on several ESL projects with Richmond/Santillana Publishing. I have also been a teacher trainer for the Spanish Government as well as writing and running my own training courses.
I hope to be able to use my experience to help you on your road to a career in TEFL. Jose and I also have a small catering business offering high quality, home-cooked Mediterranean dishes.
