I am a teacher of English in Argentina. I work in public schools. Sometimes I found it hard to teach grammar or spelling rules when I knew some of the kids had to cope with REAL problems: lack of food, lack of love, lack of attention, lack of a home, lack of anything but children´s good heart. So, I made the best of it and started working with emotional intelligence methods to soothe their difficulties. I can tell those classes were the most successful ever. Now, I blog some of the classes. I hope they are useful to those who want to have a close connection to emotional learning.
