I'm not an ESL teacher but I have 8 years of overseas teaching experience. From 1991-1998, I taught 3rd grade in Saudi Arabia. From 1998-1999 I taught 3rd grade in Beirut, Lebanon.
The school in Saudi Arabia was attended by Americans and Canadians with a smattering of other nationalities - but the school in Beirut was primarily attended by Lebanese.
I'll be happy to share my experiences with you - but my experiences are those of a self-contained elementary teacher who has had to wear many hats during the course of his career.
I am currently working in the Houston area.
