About the Instructor- 2nd version



Hi guys, based on all your questions and suggestions I have improved a bit my paragraph. That`s how it looks now:

I'm Vinicius Lemos.I work at Casa Thomas Jefferson. I have been an English teacher for 16 years or so.I have worked at Thomas for almost 10 years. I work at the Sudoeste Branch.I teach children, teenagers and adults. I learned English at Casa Thomas Jefferson. I started when I was only 11 years old. I lived in North Dakota. I was an exchange student.The year was 1993.This picture was taken last year.I was in New York City. I love cold weather. I have visited some countries in South America. I have visited Argentina,Peru, Chile and Uruguay. I am studying Spanish. I want to travel and practice Spanish.This is the 4th online course I teach. I like trying out innovative teaching and learning practices.

So , what do you think about it? Is it good enough? Is there anything you think I should do to make it look better? Should I include any other piece of information?
Give me some more ideas so that I can write my final version for this paragraph. Tomorrow night I am going to take your comments and post the final third version. See you guys!

Hi Vinicius...
Why have you chosen Casa Thomas Jefferson to work? Why are you a teacher and why have you been studying Spanish? What are the difficulties have you faced on this platform? Why not teaching face-to-face only?
Do you think I've asked too much?

Hello Vinicius... that's Karina again... but now I'm curious: you've been traveling for lots of places so far... where would be your next trip to? Feel free if you don't want to tell us...

Hi Karina, thanks for the posts. I chose CTJ because I studied there all my life and I was very familiar with the school`s philosophy. I like teaching and being in contact with different people all the time and I`ve never had a different job. I like teaching-face-to-face but with the advent of technology I want to explore new ways of teaching and learning.I love languages so I always like to learn a new one. Next vacation I am going to Australia. I guess it is going to be really fun!
