Eastbourne School Of English/Graham Smith Scholarship

Graham SmithEastbourne School of English would like to announce that it has set up a new scholarship as a tribute to much-loved teacher Graham Smith who sadly and unexpectedly passed away in July 2013. Graham joined ESOE in 1988 and was a passionate teacher and teacher-trainer who inspired thousands of students during his 25 year career at ESOE. As he was a strong believer in teacher development, the aim of the scholarship is to enable a teacher from a disadvantaged background who is newly starting out in his career as a teacher or teacher trainer to attend the IATEFL International Conference that is held annually in the UK. You can find out more details on the list of scholarships.

My name is Norma Martinez. I am from Mexico. I am an in-service TESOL teacher. I am really grateful to Eastbourne School of English for two things: firstly because 18 years ago I had the great opportunity to be part of your student's community which has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had and secondly to know that you are offering this scholarship as a tribute to my dearest friend Graham Smith. I want to thank you for honoring him in such a way. This means too much for many of those who had the chance to be his trainees. I learnt many things from him, but most of all he taught me to be a full committed teacher. I would really like to keep in touch with you as I am always fostering my students to do further English studies abroad. Looking forward to hearing from you soon Sincerely Norma Martinez
