I have learnt the latest teaching skills and activities that I will take back to my classroom, and gained a lot of useful resources. For me the most important thing is sharing what I have learnt with my colleagues, so they can develop their skills too.

Bell Teacher Academy is a really great chance to share your teaching experiences with other teachers and make new friends. I studied the Creativity in the Classroom and my teacher Claire has inspired me a lot!
At Bell, I have learnt how to effectively plan creative lessons. Our teachers have shown us simple ways to keep students engaged and have been outstanding. They are so accommodating and have made the experience exceptional.
