Hello to BAwers, friends and new ones. I have been teaching English for 22 years and Business English for 11 years at Dimitrie Cantemir University of Targu Mures, Romania. I hold a PhD in linguistics and present at different national and international events in the field.I honestly acknowledge that I owe Baw2009 everything I have been using and exploring with technology: personal and class blogs (I am really happy about this recently created one: http://www.English4usdc1.blogspot.com for my first year students), wikis, VoxOpop and Vaestro, and I initiated a yahoo group for Romanian ESP teachers in higher education (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ESP-RO). I have started a passion for exploring new paths of rekindling my students’  motivation through technology-based English language learning. Of course, there’s necessary to continuously develop in this open-ended field, that’s why I am here to learn, collaborate and share with the most dedicated family of Webhead professionals.

Sheila Passos 



Hello everybody! Nice to meet you all!



My name is Sheila Passos but you can call me Shee. My yahoo ID is sheellahh. I work at two language institutes in Brasília: CIL (CIL is a public school where only languages are taught) and Cooplem, which is a cooperative of language teachers. At CIL I’m a teacher and at Cooplem I’ve been managing the department of technology. Such department deals only with the physical part, but I’ve been trying to be involved with technology in a more pedagogical sense. I love technology and I am fascinated with what it can do for us and for students who are learning a language. It is not easy to use technology when the school doesn’t provide us with the basic tools but I really think CMC can work miracles in students’ engagement and motivation. I’m finishing a post graduation course in English teaching. I joined this group because I want to learn more so that I can improve my teaching. I believe I can enrich my classes and my expectations are really high because I could feel people’s involvement in the kickoff session. Everybody is really collaborative and it is wonderful to know people all over the world are interested in teaching, learning and collaborating.

I enjoyed my work in Purdue University with Larissa Olesova who had taught me some new technologies. I got acquainted with Teresa -one of the author of this site - in the video conference while I was in Indiana. And I hope to learn more interesting things and to have more friends all over the world.
I am 50 and before my victory in the TEA Program I considered that I am too late to participate in the International programs. And though I have 2 grandsons I am still young and want to get as more as possible from communication with my

Thanks to whoever reduced my pic file size! I am unable to add my name. In the Edit screen, there is no "your name here" above my pic cell. (I can see it however in the View screen). It's at the side in Edit, and when I add my name, it doesn't appear on the view screen. I don't have IE, but am using both Firefox and Safari to no avail.

Hello Patricia,
First you should have a thumbnail version of your picture, next you should upload it to the wiki page and finally you just have to place the cursor where you want the picture to be displayed and click on the uploaded picture.
Please let me know if you still have problems.
All the best
