Motivation

As a English as a foreign language teacher and headmaster of my school, I am highly motivated to enrol in a European network of schools and professionals which focuses on the presence of several languages in the learning environment.

Strength and experience

I have a ELT teacher for 18 years and I have been the headmaster of the school for 6 years. I will continue to be the headmaster for a number of years in the future. I have managerial skills and can design curricular approaches and organizational arrangements.I have also worked as ELT teacher at several universities.

Project related to EOL

My intention, both as teacher and as headmaster, is to create a whole-school approach to plurilingualism and to contribute to the creation of a learning environment in our school that encourages students and teachers to make steady progress in the learning and use of languages.

Needs and wishes

- We need to open our school to a European dimension of learning and language learning - We need to learn from other schools which have experience on the matter and also from experts. - I want to contribute to the network with my own expertise.
