❝If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.❞ ‒Nelson Mandela
Hi, I'm Laura Brass. I'm an ESL Teacher
A Little About Myself.
My Name is Laura Brass, and I have been an ESL/EFL teacher for over 15 years. Originally from Târgoviște, Romania, I grew up straddling Communism and Revolution. As the world around me changed and the revolution gave birth to a new Romania, it brought with it an influx of Western-ism and ENGLISH! English and the pursuit of teaching it has been my passion since I was a teenager. I have been fortunate enough to teach and learn Internationally from England to Italy, the USA to my new home in Vancouver BC, Canada. Now I find myself on the precipice of a new chapter unfolding in that pursuit as I stare down the end of my MEd program. I look forward to starting this chapter with a renewed vigor and enhanced knowledge of my chosen profession with the hope of making a difference in my students' lives the way so many of my teachers impacted on mine.
