My name is Gladys Ledwith and I live in a small town, 50 kms from Buenos Aires called Escobar. At the moment I am Head of the English Department in a bilingual school in Del Viso but I have been an English teacher for more than 30 years now. I am married and have three children Mariano (31), Alejandro (29) and Mercedes (26).
My Website & Blog
For the last 16 years I have worked as Head of the English Department in three different bilingual schools in Buenos Aires; one of the aspects I enjoyed most was providing in service training to teachers. I am interested in sharing my experience and helping colleagues become the best teacher they can.

I am interested in teaching in general and integrating technology into our classrooms in particular. I enjoy sharing information, projects and ideas with colleagues.
I would like to help teachers use technology in engaging ways to help students develop higher level thinking skills. Here are a number of videos which have inspired me!
