Being a solopreneur can get lonely, but in ELTABB I found other teachers who are passionate about their professional development, and who understand how important it is to be a part of a network of people who support each other. ELTABB is where freelancers find colleagues and connections.
Like so many TEFL teachers, I am an immigrant who was (and still is a little!) new to the hows, whys, whos, wheres and whats of this city. Through Eltabb I found an interesting and welcoming network of people who support each other and provide countless opportunities for work and professional development.
