Mike Simpson has found a way to combine his skills as an ESL teacher and graphic designer. Mike believes that everyone can cultivate original ideas and learn how to express themselves creatively. It may be dormant from childhood but it’s still there. His advice? Get creative and experiment – try some new things and try to offer a unique service or product.
Mike, can you start off by telling us where you teach?
I am not currently teaching in the classroom, but I’m an ESL teacher with LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) and EAP experience. In spring of 2017, I supply taught for Centennial College and CCLCS, a provider of LINC classes and TESL training (both schools are in Toronto, Canada). Earlier this year, I designed an online course on my website Ancestry Project called Introduction to Digital Storytelling. I’m the official instructor and I invite everyone to register for the site and take this free course.
How long have you been...
