Episode 65: ‘When Trust is Built, Learning can Happen’ with Anjalee Beverly EVERYTHING EFL

This week I am joined once again by the inspirational Anjalee Beverly (check out Episode 36 if you haven't already). She is all about building community in the class room before reallygetting down the nitty-gritty of teaching. Anjalee is a mainstream school teacher: how many of these ideas can you steal and adapt from this episode for your class? 1. Class Agreements 2. Affirmations 3. Community Circle 4. Surveys 5. Collective Breath Episode Shownotes: Anjalee Beverly is a twelfth year elementary education teacher who has recently moved to an International school in Cartajena, Colombia. Anjalees’ motto is trust before standards and she seeks to bring joy and rigor to every class session. She believes relationship building with students and their families is a crucial part of the learning process. Her ultimate goal as an educator is to teach her students to love themselves as they are and to find liberation through academic excellence.

-Erin O’Byrne-

Well, that would be me. I’m Erin O’Byrne and I’m from the UK but I call Ireland my home. I have years of experience teaching both students and teachers. I decided to carry on the podcast solo and am loving every minute of it! I’m currently designing courses for mainstream school teachers who teach English but need a few EFL-y pointers.

Shane came for the ride but got off after 30 or so episodes. Still, he has been a vital part of Everything EFL Podcast. Keep your eye out: he may return as a guest…
