Help other teachers start on their TPRS/TCI journey.
She has a special gift for seeing both sides, for knowing where people are coming from and understanding their pain.

LET’S CREATE A BRIDGE WE CAN ALL WALK ON TO GET TOGETHER. LET’S COMMUNICATE!
Kirstin Plante Oh it feels good to see everyone again in this video! It does a great job of picturing the ambiance and vibrant exchange of ideas!

The Agen Workshop is the largest TPRS conference in Europe.
“She models what it means to care about students and the patience required to teach. “
Lunch is our secret weapon. Agen is at the heart of a region reputed for its good food and there is almost a surplus of excellent but inexpensive restaurants. We encourage participants to choose one and go to lunch together. Instead of grabbing a sandwich and rushing back, we want them to take their time over lunch, to enjoy the food and process what they have seen and learned, sharing their thoughts and exchanging ideas, asking questions and giving themselves time to absorb a very different way of viewing their profession.
At the heart of the conference are the language classes where experienced teachers demonstrate how to do a week of Comprehensible Input and invite the participants to stand up and get coached afterwards.
