Here’s an example of what past teachers have said about working at CLASS (we recently changed names, we used to be The English House!)
“Being a part of the Class (The English House) team was one of the most powerful experiences I’ve had so far. I had the chance to develop both professionally and personally as the school helped me gain confidence through its support system, and also through collaborating and bonding with the rest of the team and the students. The academy encourages values such as sharing and caring for each other, empathy, support, positivity, acceptance, and forgiveness, which are essential to our students and the staff. Finally, Jennifer has been extremely helpful and supportive to all of the staff (and students of course) and has been an inspirational figure to all of us with her creativity, innovative ideas, kindness and positivity.” Olympia Pipélia
“The absolute best place for a career teacher to work. The English House teaches you how to teach and how to teach well, providing opportunities for growth and development for teachers with any level of experience in a friendly, relaxed but professional team environment.” Jim Clarke
“The English House has a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere for both staff and students alike. Career development is a top priority; the school provides excellent teacher training and encourages staff to take initiative and advance their career. It was a great place to work where I learnt how to teach and made friends for life.” Katie White
“The English House meant for me many things: thorough career development, wonderful friendships, and even a new direction in life. Because of the incredible support I received there through Jennifer, I was able to make a life in Spain and even set up my own school in Tarifa. The English House remains a key place in my life, and will always be one of the cornerstones of who I am. Jennifer has dedicated her life to that school, and it shows. I only hope that I can support my teachers as much as she has”. Nika Aull
