So... What is this place?

First of all, Hi, I'm Valentina and this is my very own creative space / online living room / blog, whatever you want to call it.

Basically, It's where I share what I'm learning, working on and what inspires me that just won't fit the 1'300 character limit for my LinkedIn Posts.

Who am I?

I'm a Teacher Trainer and Communication Trainer based in Milan - though most of what I do is online.

I help new and experienced Educators create unique and engaging Online Learning Experiences for their students by exploring new tools, techniques and strategies.
Yup, I push teachers outside their comfort zone for a living 😁

Where did it all start?

Growing up as the daughter of an expat, I experienced my fair share of moves and changes. 

I remember spending most days feeling like an outsider (especially in my home country) and having to come to terms with language barriers, cultural differences, fear of judgement and A LOT of self-doubt.

For the longest time all I wanted was to fit in...
It took me years to realize how important authenticity is and to embrace and celebrate what makes me unique.

I've taken this lesson to heart and I love to apply it to the way I run my teaching business and my teacher training activities.

Now it's your turn!
