I have met and continue to meet the most interesting and inspiring ELT educators from around the world. Parisa Mehran is no exception. I think that Parisa is one of the most active ELTers out there and she constantly strives to find ways to informally and formally teach others about a variety of important issues from stereotyping in our profession to her latest work - Women of Color in ELT.
Please have a read of my short interview with Parisa:
1. Hello again Parisa. Nice to see you here. Can you please introduce yourself to the readers?
My name is Parisa and I am an Iranian English teacher based in Japan. Despite the continued prevalence of the “native speaker” model, I have been teaching English part-time for two years at several Japanese universities and at an English conversation school.
2. What inspired you to start Women of Color in ELT?
