Welcome to the Teaching Cove!

Connecting English Teachers and Educators to Expert Resources, Motivational Tips and Organizational Hacks



I’m Sapna and I’m here to help! After I left the corporate world in 2011 to follow my passions, I decided to teach English, study for a Master’s at Oxford, travel, and move my busy life  to Barcelona. (You can read my story here)

The Teaching Cove is an organized, fun way to connect to expert resources. Are you an English teacher looking for classroom resources, or ways to motivate your students? Organizational life hacks to make your life simpler? The Teaching Cove is here to help you!

Let’s connect! I’d love to hear from you! Click the buttons to the right to follow me. Scroll down to grab your free printables, too. Access to a whole library of free materials is coming soon!
