My name is Darina. I’m an English teacher. English language is my biggest passion and I love sharing it.
I used to live in the USA and I studied there at the Delaware English Language University. Besides, I had a part-time job as a childminder for 2 wonderful boys, I would help them with their homework and plan exciting activities for their free time.
After I got my TESOL I decided to change my life and to explore other countries. I found out that English teachers are in high demand in China, so with no hesitations I decided to dive in. China is a wonderful country with the long history, friendly people and beautiful cities.
I like teaching and I like working with children, and I think that I am quite good at it)
Step Up is a great and professional school which opens great opportunities for their students.
I believe that discipline and respect are the key for a successful lesson. While teaching I try to change activities often, keep kids engage in the class activities, to keep them busy all the time. At Step Up all teachers follow well-thought-out lesson plans and use a big variety of resources that ensure that we bring the best to every class.
I’m proud to be a part of Step Up team!
在我得到TESOL之后，我决定改变我的生活，探索其他国家。我发现中国的英语教师需求量很大，所以我毫不犹豫地决定投入其中。中国是一个有着悠久历史 、 友好人民和美丽城市的美好国家。我喜欢教书，喜欢和孩子们一起工作，而且我觉得我很擅长。
