Present, Absent, Late...

Gardner English teachers now have the option of delivering their class attendance via Internet. As we use Google Docs & Spreadsheets to share spreadsheets, it's easy to fill them with the details of our classes. This step will save time for Gardner English teachers and for our administrative team.

The website has also been updated a little this week, because we've included our team's birthdays on its calendar. This way, everybody can celebrate them! We believe that the Gardner English staff deserve this public mention for the hard work and effort they've put in over the years.

Teacher Interviewed

David Bevis, one of our school's teachers, has just been interviewed by the website Expat Interviews, which brings together articles about people who are living outside their native countries. In his interview, David talks about his experiences of being in Mexico, how it was when he arrived, how it is now, and shares his photos of Mexico.

You can also find many other people's biographies on this site, which reveals stories about people in countries all over the world. As this site is in English, it also represents an opportunity for any English student who wishes to practise what they've learned.

Gardner English and Google Apps

Gardner English is now backed by Google when it comes to communication. Our school's teachers will have email accounts provided by Google Apps, which will also be linked to online calendars and documents. We expect this step to make the school more responsive in its relationships with clients and students.
