I am an English teacher.

Last night, the bride, from last year’s FT PGDP group, related an incident in her childhood where her grandmother allowed her to choose English for an after-school interest activity, which laid the foundation for her becoming an English teacher some years later. Last night when she proclaimed in front of all the guests that she is an English teacher today, she said it with pride.

I believe that quality English Language Teaching is a highly professional endeavour. I hope that one day, all ELT educators can proudly declare: “I am an English teacher.”
