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)
