Class, today's topic is... ME!
So they say that teaching is what I am - everything else is what I do. Let's tackle both.
WHO I AM:
a woman born in 1987, in Poland, Central Europe
bilingual (Polish/English) and curious from early childhood
a teacher since I was 15 years old - first as a volunteer helping to teach kids less fortunate than me, then, gradually, by profession. I strongly believe in the individual approach to each and every student.
aspiring polyglott now, teaching English, Japanese, Polish and Esperanto. Avid learner of many more languages. In love with sign languages lately.
researcher and assistant in her alma mater - Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań; in her wide array of research interest she prefers glottodidactics and neurolinguistics the most
WHAT I DO:
I love books so much that I run out of shelfspace!!
I write a lot. Blogs, papers, poems, books... you name it! You can search through the various links below to find out more.
Sometimes I enjoy translating things.
I maintain a life of an atheist, a freethinker and queer person, supporting LGBT right, equality among people and preaching science!
In my freetime, if I have any, I enjoy cooking, baking, crafting, lenghty discussions, surfing the net and spending whatever money I had earned on more books and visiting variety of restaurants (where I taste whiskey - like a sir!).
Nice to meet you!
