Anca Geidel | TESOL 2.2


  • American curriculum
  • great colleagues and even greater students
  • Language Arts classes rather than EAL (MS + HS)


It is a very welcoming and warm environment. You are never "just an intern" but a part of the ASLP community right from the start.

8A: everything worked exactly as planned, students engaged, fun lesson

8B: did not work at all, had to stop an activity and improvise/show flexibility

valuable lesson for myself >>> perfectionism

good teaching moment(s)

The only times I ever really felt unprofessional or unprepared were when I was either co-teaching with my mentor teacher or substituting for him. We were very different in planning and structuring a lesson.


I have noticed a significant difference between teaching Middle and High School...

what would you have done?


I found it hard to connect with my High School students (grade 11 and 12) and all the more easy to connect with my Middle Schoolers (grade 8 and 9).
