Hi, I am Laurel Pollard. At the start of each of my workshops I say "from this day on, your teaching life will be easier and more effective." This is my committment to you and to teachers all over the world. I have worked with teachers in a wide variety of settings, including public schools, adult education, ESL, EFL, Literacy, and also teaching foreign languages in English-speaking countries. I am co-author of several best-selling publications by ALTA English Publishers, including the collection of Zero Prep Activities for Beginners, Zero Prep Activities for All Levels, and WOW! Stories from Real Life a low beginning multi-skills text.
