What is the best gift you can give your children? It is the gift of learning a new language. This is one gift you can provide for them that could potentially benefit them over the course of their lives. Childhood is a time of unparalleled desire for learning and a new language is a rich subject that many children enjoy the most. At this age, they can learn much more quickly than adults, especially if they are provided with the right materials and encouragement.
That is where Samantha’s Stories comes in. I am Samantha and I am an American teacher, holding both a license by the State of California and an MA in education. I have many years of teaching experience, both in the classroom, and in the online world. I teach both children and adults, and I was an elementary school ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher for more than 10 years.
Unfortunately, a heart problem took me out of the classroom for several years, but now I am able to work again. During my convalescence, I created a series of children’s books about a girl named Tasha and her dog Benji. They were designed specifically for non-English speaking children and introduce basic vocabulary concepts in a fun and easy way.
