Just an update.
I want to be clear (because I didn’t say it in the video) that I am not sad, or upset, or mad of the time and money wasted – because it wasn’t wasted. I am 100% happy with this choice, and I’m glad I realised it this early in my age.

Qualifications for ESL Teaching
“ESL Teaching is a skilled job which requires you to be aware of the nuances and tricks of teaching English as a Second Language. As it goes, teaching English as a Second Language is slightly different from teaching English as a First Language. Ideally, when you look at the list of requirements required for ESL Teaching Jobs, you would know that it is not really that much different from the ones for EFL.
Do I require to be of a certain age to teach ESL or apply for an ESL Teaching Job?
Not really, in fact there is no age limit for people who wish to apply for ESL Teaching job. Schools advertising for requirements for ESL Teaching Jobs would always want people with some business experience. Ideally, these guys would be able to transpire their business knowledge to imparting education in English. Hence, people with some teaching background having some business experience would make the cut for ESL Teaching jobs.
Would you be able to apply for ESL Teaching jobs if you are not a graduate?
This is a tricky question though. I can answer this by saying that it entirely depends on the country that requires your services for ESL Teaching Jobs. For example, English Jobs Japan would require you to be a graduate. After your graduation, you would have had to complete some years teaching English as the First Language.
Do you really need to be a native English speaker to apply for ESL Teaching jobs?
In essence, this is completely dependant on the requirements of the school. Most schools would want native English speakers to apply for ESL Teaching jobs. This requirement though varies with the school that advertises the ESL Teaching jobs. Ideally, native English speakers are considered to be the best proponents of English. Though, in this matter quite a few near native English speakers are fast catching up.
Once you have a recognized certification like the Trinity or the CELTA, you would be able to find a good enough job. I am assuming that you are taking all this headache because you wish to land into ESL Teaching jobs.
ESL Teaching jobs are one of the most prestigious ones across all industries. One of the best aspects of ESL Teaching jobs is that it helps you rebuild a nation. It helps you to be associated with the nation’s efforts for globalization. Now, to land in ESL Teaching jobs you do not require a whole lot of certifications. Being a graduate and having passed the CELTA or Trinity would be good enough for you to get selected for an ESL Teaching job.”
Finding Kitesurfing Equipment in UK
Kitesurfing is one extreme sport that’s enjoyed by people all over the world. Its popularity has reached many parts of the world that it is now among the most popular water sports in the US, UK, South Africa and even as far as Asia. For kitesurfing enthusiasts, finding the right equipment is not a problem, with the many sources available. Here are some ways to find kitesurfing equipment in the UK.
If you are serious about kitesurfing, you must make sure that you have the best equipment that you can have. “Best” does not mean the most expensive but the one that you are most accustomed with. There are basically two kinds of equipment that you can buy: new and used equipment.
New equipment can be bought in sports shops and through the internet. Every kitesurfing school and kitesurfing location is sure to have a sports store which sells equipment near it. Before you buy any equipment, ask tips from your trainer or any kitesurfer you know on where and what items to buy. If there is no sports shop, then try visiting a local department store or warehouse.
The internet is also another venue to buy equipment. Browse through the many websites dedicated to kitesurfing. Most of them feature equipment for sale. Some sites even compare the different brands according to some criteria like price and features. Aside from this information, you may also learn tips on kitesurfing and other useful information related to the sport.
Those who have mastered this sport would advice starters to buy used equipment. Aside from the cheaper cost, there are many sources available. If you are enrolled in a kitesurfing school, you can ask your trainer or other older kitesurfers if they knew of any used equipment for sale. Some schools actually sell used equipment. Be sure to check the item for any defects.
You can also search for used equipment in the internet. There are many websites which feature used equipment for sale. The downside, though, is that you are unable to see the item personally before buying it. Also, there is added cost for shipment, so it may cost a bit more than when it is bought in a store.
What equipment do you need to buy? First, you need a kite. There are different kites available, such as inflatable kites and foil kites. There are pros and cons to each type of kite. It is best that you buy the kind which you have tried kitesurfing with.
Next is the board. Again, there are many different boards available and each type performs differently, so choose well. The board has footstraps which make it easier for you to attach and detach from it.
Other equipment includes helmets, life vest, harness, flying lines and control bar, among others. A wetsuit and some boots complete the get-up.
If you live in UK, there are many sources of kitesurfing equipment. But one word of advice though. Before purchasing any equipment, make sure that you really like the sport. Equipment can be quite expensive, so it is wise not to spend money on it if you have no intentions of pursuing the sport.
Perhaps you can test the waters first by enrolling in a kitesurfing school. If after a few lessons you still feel the same way, then that’s when you buy the equipment.
School Uniform – Don’t Waste it, Recycle It
Did you know that the UK generates between 550,000 and 900,000 tonnes of textile waste every year? It’s a staggering amount of waste. Up to 700,000 tonnes of textiles are landfilled every year – half of this amount could be recycled.
The solution is to collect waste materials and put them into a textiles ‘clothes’ bank, or donate the item(s) to a charity shop or even a jumble sale. The School in conjunction with the PTA should be able to operate a second hand school uniform shop for everything from sweatshirts to blazers. Junior/Infant Schools seem to be much better at doing this than Senior Schools.
I have run a school uniform business for some time now and I am a firm advocate of recycling initiatives such as freecycle.org. The country as a whole is now a disposable nation. If a pair of trousers has a small hole in the knee, they get thrown away – in my experience I find that many younger parents cannot sew (let alone posses a needle and cotton!).
Why do I write an article like this when my primary business is selling new school uniform? Simple, it really is not about making money all the time – I saw a beautiful sunrise this morning and it made me feel really good. We can all do our bit to reduce landfill and this is the start of my contribution – What can you do to help?

History class is boring. At least that’s what most of us remember from our elementary and junior high school years.
So how come a 5th grader, after completing an 8 page (!) history test about Ancient Greece excitedly asks her teacher if she can read the last paragraph of her test to him?
How do you motivate students to make the learning of history so exciting that students can’t wait to come to class each day?
Watch this video to see how, in LePort’s elementary school program, we connect history to the children’s life today. What if your child could learn history, and all other school subjects, in this exciting, engaging way?

I Want to Teach in Your School
A job interview to teach in a public school or in any institution of learning for children or youth is unlike any other kind of job interview. And it is worth our time to discuss what makes that kind of job interview so different so you can go in and land that job you want and get the next step of your career in teaching well on the way.
In a job interview for a teaching position, two things dominate the discussion. The first one is the regular interview stuff such as your résumé, your background, your education, any publishing history you have and your job history. So to quickly get that part of the interview in order, bring a well prepared resume with you. Now when preparing your resume, keep in mind that the resume does not get you the job. The resume gets you in the door for the interview and serves as a skeleton outline of who you are so the school and the administrator interviewing you knows that at a basic level, you have the credentials to be a good teacher at their school.
It is the second aspect of a job interview for a teaching position that will make the difference between whether you will be hired or not. And that is how the interviewer does when he or she envisions you teaching in one of the classrooms in their building. During the interview, the questions that are asked and the way the interviewer looks at you tells you that he or she is picturing you teaching the students in their school and how you represent yourself as well as your demeanor and personality are what will give that administrator a good feel for your teaching style as well.
So customize everything about your interview presentation around looking and acting like the kind of teacher this administrator wants in his or her school. You can start with your outfit. Don’t dress so formally that you bring the appearance of a harsh school marm. Look at the actual wardrobe you will wear when you are teaching a class of this new boss. Pick out something visually pleasing, relaxed and yet professional so the administrator feels that you would be a warm and yet eficicient personality to influence young minds in their school.
In an interview setting, we often worry about what we will say in response to questions. But what will be the determining factor in whether you land the teaching position is not what is said verbally but what you communicate with your facial expressions, the way you express your ideas and the enthusiasm you bring to the interview. These are subtle nonverbal elements of your interview demeanor that the interviewer may not even know are influencing the decisions of who to hire. But they are powerful massages that can really only be communicated through inflection, genuine interest in the interview process and personality.
There are a number of questions the interviewer is trying to get answers to that he or she can never really ask out loud. But these questions are very much a part of this interview and the extent to which you answer these questions correctly will make all the difference when the hiring decision is made. Some of the questions include…
. Does this person love children?
. Does this person have a passion for teaching?
. Will this person fit in with the culture of our school?
. Will the students enjoy this new teacher?
. Is this teacher even tempered and able to handle crisis?
. Will this teacher comply with our policies and procedures?
. Is this teacher a creative person?
. Will this teacher stay with us for a long time so I don’t have to do this interview again?
All of these questions can be answered in the way you present yourself, in your smile, your laugh and your ability to relax during the interview. The kinds of stories from our past and how you tell those stories will surface that you really do love to teach and you are the kind of teacher who bonds naturally with students and brings out the best in them. And if you can get that message across during the interview, you will land the job every time.

English Chest History
If your closet is anything like mine, storage space seems to be very limited. There are multiple hangers on the ground and various garments that I haven’t worn in years but which I still treasure for sentimental reasons. The more I seem to hang these items, the more it seems that there is a conspiracy for the clothes to gang up and become more adamant about lying on the floor.
So, I have given up and now it looks like my closet is a place where clothes go when they feel tired and don’t feel like standing up on a hanger like the rest of their fellow counterparts. I have thought about the possible ways to arrange my chaotic closet world, and the best solution that I have reached thus far seemed to involve an English chest. Don’t be intimidated by the fancy term, it’s merely a big wooden box to throw your stuff in. Similar to the big toy box that you had when you were a little tyke. I figure it is a perfect solution to my mess. I will put all the things that I want to keep but can’t really find a perfect place for in this English chest.
For the early settlers, chests were vital because there were no dressers or closets to store clothing, household sheets, etc. Most of them didn’t have an attic or a cellar to store things. Chests and drawers the way we know them nowadays were nonexistent. Can you imagine the mess in their house? Once the English chest was invented, people immediately began to use it for a variety of purposes. The English chest was used to sleep on, as a dinner table, or in place of a chair. Chairs were expensive and not usually found among simple cottages.
Chests were made to be very durable and made out of the strongest woods. They were found in the poorest houses to big, extravagant mansions. By the mid-seventeenth century, English chests were decorated extravagantly. These are the ones we see today across antique stores that are popular. The Baroque style English chest had extravagant details that had many design elements which included elaborate carvings, heavy ornamentation, moldings, twisted columns, and motifs of shells or tulips.
Most of us know English chests as the kind that a new bride uses to store her precious wedding dress or other heirlooms. There are many other uses for this wooden box as history has proven to us.
