I have worked for more than twenty years as an ELT teacher, teaching children in the UK, Portugal and Spain. In 2005, I began working as a primary materials writer for Macmillan Education ELT and since then, I have co-authored four primary ELT course book series. I have also co-authored Social and Natural Science course books in English for primary children and written a number of primary graded readers.
In addition to teaching and material writing, I have been involved in the training and professional development of language teachers, delivering talks and workshops for private and public educational institutions. I have also contributed teaching materials and methodology articles to ELT online magazines. My research interests include student voice, learner interaction, creativity and the development of critical thinking skills in the primary EFL classroom.
