  1. Education events are the best. If you are a teacher and can’t afford time to visit training annually. It’s a great way to improve your skills, learn new teaching methods and strategies and share experience with your fellow teachers. I wish they were holding a summit like this here as well. It’s rather disappointing how the majority of my students get essays for money and I really want to motivate them. I’m not that experienced so learning a few trick would be nice. Moreover, I’d like to learn how to make lessons both effective and entertaining.
