Hello! I’m Aytakin Ahmadova, an English teacher working in Azerbaijan, Ismayilli secondary school #1. I’m proud of being a teacher. This is the profession that l love and respect. I’ve been working as a teacher for 13 years. One of the thing I like about teaching English is that you have access everything, opportunity to learn foreign practice, to exchange experience, teach different issues, cultures,… Teaching different countries, cultures differently in English enjoys me very much. As a teacher I always keep in mind that my students learn differently. For example, visual learners learn by seeing, auditory learn by listening, kinesthetic learn by doing. For me to reach out to different styles of learners with creative, amusing and didactic way is important. One of the essential methods in teaching foreign language is PBL. I think that learning through projects are great innovations for learning a language, developing real-life skills and applying technology. Learning about Japan, Ito (via corresponding) its culture, geography through projects help my students be a good researcher, investigator and a good pen-pal. As an English teacher I work with projects since 2004 .Through project-based learning students have the opportunity to use language in real life , engage in collaborative work and advance their teamwork skills, and think critically and creatively. I achieve to facilitate students to become acquainted with information technology and multimedia tools.
I also do volunteer work in my community. I am the first English volunteer teacher in Ismayilli who teaches English in kindergarten. I prepared a syllabus, and designed a colorful book for YLs. Beside these I teach voluntarism lessons, prepare slideshows, and help my community to improve itself
