What’s your purpose here at MES-English.com?
I intend to make a website that will be easy to navigate and so full of materials that teachers will need to come several times to look at it all. Teachers will be able to find versatile resources that will inspire and be worth their time and effort. All materials should have both reason and purpose. Every page should contain something teachers want to have in their arsenal. This website should be informative and to the point. And that’s it!
Who are you?
My name is Mark Cox. I am American, raised in Oklahoma and studied pharmacy at university (at UCONN.) After moving to Japan in 1999, I got TEFL certification and I finally finished my Masters in Applied Linguistics in the spring of 2010. I currently work at my own private English conversation school and I teach classes at two different nursing colleges. I also moonlight as a webmaster 😉 but don’t tell anyone. I started teaching English in Japan in 1999. I worked for 2 years full-time in the public school system (elementary schools and junior high schools) and then opened up my own English conversations school. Astounded by the cost of teaching materials, I decided to make everything myself. I made my own curriculum for my children’s classes, and what you see here on MES-English are the materials and activities that I have made to support that, plus a few things from other teaching environments I’ve worked in.
I started making web pages and flash intros for my personal web site (which would now be called a blog I guess.) In 2002, I started my own English conversation school in Nagano, Japan. I made some FLASH games and a second web site for my English school. Three years later I began MES-English.com to provide the materials I have made for other teachers to use. I’m married and have 4 children. My own children serve as the inspiration at times and as the fun inspectors on most materials. I’ve found the materials very useful and I hope you do too.
