It has been a very long time since I have added a new blog post on my blog. Inside I was feeling so guilty and this is the first fact about myself! I am again very thankful to Burcu, a very creative educator, for tagging me on the blog challenge because she made me come back and write a new post. I think Burcu has a very powerful effect for inspiring people around her or people who follows her.

I didn’t want to be a teacher when I was in university but now I really love being an ELT teacher. Also I feel honored while speaking at the conferences.
