Cross-cultural communications company, Happy Teachers, is seeking to educate and reshape the way teachers think of business ownership at the inaugural 2019 Caribbean TESOL Expo on Wednesday, April 17 at the Courtleigh Auditorium.

The event’s theme ‘Teaching English Across Borders’ aims to help English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers achieve and maintain sustainable growth through creating a small business.

The conference will provide key insights on learning how to earn USD teaching online, identifying trends in the ESL industry, building an online teaching business and finding teaching jobs abroad.

Through Happy Teacher’s guidance, attendees will learn how they can position themselves as a catalyst for innovation by leveraging opportunity in an ever-expanding digital world.

Venice Irving, Chief Executive Officer at Happy Teachers, believes that languages and technology are integral to solve problems and is a thriving sector.
