Roxana is a graduate Primary School Teacher and Sworn Translator and has been teaching in both state and private schools and translating for many companies for the past 25 years within Buenos Aires. She has run her own School of Language, Leighton Institute since 1997 and has been the head of the English Department at Adveniat Secondary School since 2015.
Roxana first began to use Jolly Phonics in her teaching in 2013 after becoming involved in a Jolly Phonics pilot project for six states schools in Buenos Aires. The results of using Jolly Phonics was a turning point in Roxana’s professional life. She now feels that her students look forward to their English lessons as they are attractive, fun and more memorable, and in turn the students have more confidence and have a complete understanding of what they are reading and writing. Before Jolly Phonics, Roxana felt there was something missing, but now the students have the necessary tools to read and write in English.
Roxana sees a big difference working with synthetic phonics and is convinced of the success in using Jolly Phonics. For that reason she would like to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with others.
