About

Rita_normalHello! My name is Rita, and throughout my teaching career, I have taught ESL and Spanish to all academic levels from K-4 through college, and, most recently, in-services for faculties wanting to incorporate educational technologies in their teaching.

To date, I would say I have had amazing career opportunities.  Each place I have taught has taught me more, and I can say the same about each age group with which I have worked.  I have learned that each age has its own beauty and its own needs, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with such diverse students.  But, I’m not done yet.

The world continues to shrink, and I continue to globalize my life and my career even more. Through web 2.0 technologies, I am connected daily with people around the world and am beginning a new career as managing member and educational consultant with Act 2 Educational Consultants LLC, a new start-up organization of professionals from around the United States.  Wish us well in our endeavors!  Visit us at Act2educon.me.

Thanks for visiting this blog.  Please do not hesitate to leave comments.  I would enjoy hearing from you and sharing a moment in time with you!

  4. Hello Rita,

    I’m Lúcia from lingholic.com, and I believe I have something you might want to share with your audience.

    It is a collection of the best images from several Facebook Pages with great content for English teachers and learners, which can be found here:

    I believe they are easy to use and a funny way to teach English.

    If you think it is useful for your students, please consider adding it to your resources pages, it means a lot for us!

    Best Regards,
    Lucia Leite
