My name is Sandra Vida. I teach secondary school students in Lendava, Slovenia. This website started as a part of my MA dissertation in TESOL (EdTech) at the University of Manchester and my goal is to keep it growing regularly. I am an active board member of IATEFL Slovenia, with a special passion for organizing conferences and other events. I also regularly present at conferences, especially on the subject of educational technology, songs for EFL and creative tasks.
I have a passion for teaching, learning and music so the most obvious thing for me is to try to combine the three. This is my attempt in getting some order in the materials I have collected during the years and giving them a new, modern look.
In what is left of my free time, I read and cycle.
To contact me, you can send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
