Join us for a special episode with guest, Theo Joubert.In this episode of Mentorships in Education, we welcome Theo Joubert, an English language teacher devoted to helping kids learn. Mentorships in Education is brought to you by Just Education, LLC and is hosted by Judith Epstein. Judith has a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Language Acquisition. She is certified in special education with post-graduate coursework and professional development in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Social Thinking, and Collaborative & Proactive Solutions and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT). Judith created Just Education, LLC to compile a free resource library for mentors of students who struggle on a wide variety of topics that are all related to education and student success.About Theo JoubertI decided to spend my life helping kids in 1990. Teaching seemed a suitable profession. After graduation, I trained teachers upgrading their qualifications and taught senior high physics. after that, I taught grade 5 to grade 7 in South Africa until the end of 2002.In 2003, I began teaching English in Taiwan. Once I had some experience, I began developing my own teaching system and books. Today I have my own school and teach our students using my system and materials. We've been able to create an environment for kids to enjoy learning and for people who care about kids to learn how to teach.Teaching English in Taiwan is a fantastic experience. We get to teach the same students twice a week for multiple years in a row. Over time, we get to know our students and their families. Most of our students join us after kindergarten and leave when they set off for university. Our students are absolute beginners when they join our school. Once they complete our formal system, they join our reading program, where we guide them to read English novels. Reading novels is a great way to have massive comprehensible input. We have a structured system for teaching challenging words and phrases in the novels and helping kids practice their listening and speaking skills. Reading each novel aloud with a native English speaker helps students improve their pronunciation and fluency. At present, I am working on improving our system for beginners to make learning English easier and more fun. This includes a more efficient learning path for mastering the English alphabet, internalizing the letter sounds and an introduction to Phonics that is easy to learn and easy to teach.YouTube Channel (Learn English Theo Joubert)https://www.youtube.com/user/theojoubert1Theo's Social Media:https://www.facebook.com/jeffrey.jewbear https://www.linkedin.com/in/theo-joubert-65331b150CONNECT WITH USEmail Judi: info@justeducationfirst.comOur Website: http://justeducationfirst.comJudi on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/judith-epstein-30936971

Join us for a special episode with special guest, Kim Inglis (Kim May).In this episode of Mentorships in Education, we welcome  Kim Inglis (Kim May), an Australian author and true heroine in the fight against abuse and neglect. Mentorships in Education is brought to you by Just Education, LLC and is hosted by Judith Epstein. Judith has a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Language Acquisition. She is certified in special education with post-graduate coursework and professional development in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Social Thinking, and Collaborative & Proactive Solutions and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT). Judith created Just Education, LLC to compile a free resource library for mentors of students who struggle on a wide variety of topics that are all related to education and student success.About Kim Inglis (Kim May)As an abuse survivor, I have a passion for keeping children safe. Growing up in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, was challenging as at the time, family violence and prejudice was a common occurrence. But it was through these challenging moments of my life that I learnt how important it was to have a voice.Having spent more than 30 years working in Social Services with children, young adults and older adults in a variety of roles, I have been fortunate enough to gain incredible experience and insight into the needs of the more vulnerable members of our community.Whether it was a Nursing Assistant position in an Aged Care Facility, managing a Disability Day Service for over 150 clients and staff, Case Manager for children, Intake and Response worker for children and young adults or volunteering with the Office of Public Advocates, the journey has brought me closer to protecting others from abuse and neglect.Sharing such valuable moments with families and children, coupled with extensive training over the years, has enabled me to better understand the important and relevant social issues of domestic violence, abuse and trauma and the impact they have on children. For people on the Autism Spectrum, such abuse and trauma can lead to ‘challenging behaviours’ caused from anxiety which is often misunderstood by others in the community.As I continue to write and publish educational books, it is my hope that they will be used as a tool to give a voice to those who need it, so that we can prevent neglect and abuse before it has a lasting impact on a person’s life.Webpage:  www.funnyfeelingsarentfunny.comLink - ChildAware Conference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7KuUqgzPsYEmail: kimmay@funnyfeelingsarentfunny.comDr R Eisenmajer: https://www.theasdclinic.com.au/team-list/richard-eisenmajerInstagram: funnyfeelingsarentfunnyLinked In: https://au.linkedin.com/in/kim-inglis-prev-swift-7b0493a1Get the Book: https://www.amazon.com/Funny-Feelings-Arent-Kim-May/dp/0648474003/CONNECT WITH USEmail Judi: info@justeducationfirst.comOur Website: http://justeducationfirst.comJudi on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/judith-epstein-30936971
