  • Stella Maris Martino

    stella-maris-martinoBuenos Aires

    Stella is a graduate teacher from the National University of Mar del Plata, Argentina. She has been teaching English for over 25 years to children and adolescents. She has developed EFL classroom projects at both private and state institutions. She works at AACI Certificates (Asociación Argentina de Cultura Inglesa) as an exams developer and she is a Cambridge English Speaking Examiner.

    When she came across Jolly Phonics it was ‘love at first sight’. She took part in a pilot experience that was being carried out in some state schools in Buenos Aires in 2014. Since then, she has been applying the Jolly Phonics programme in all her classes with excellent results. She has also spread the word about the benefits of the synthetic phonics method at different lectures.

    Stella currently works as a teacher trainer at the government’s professional training centre in the  Autonomous City of Buenos Aires where she coaches  other English teachers on how to use the synthetic phonics method.

    You can see recordings of Stella’s students reading words and short texts on her YouTube Channel The Reading Corner.

  • Nidia Roxana Igielski

    roxanaBuenos Aires

    Roxana is a graduate Primary School Teacher and Sworn Translator and has been teaching in both state and private schools and translating for many companies for the past 25 years within Buenos Aires. She has ruled over her own School of Language, Leighton Institute since 1997 and has been the head of the English Department at Adveniat Secondary School since 2015.

    Roxana first began to use Jolly Phonics in her teaching in 2013, after becoming involved in a Jolly Phonics pilot project for six state schools in Buenos Aires. The results of using Jolly Phonics was a turning point in Roxana’s professional life. She now feels that her students look forward to their English lessons as they are attractive, fun and more memorable, in turn the students have more confidence and have a complete understanding of what they are reading and writing. Before Jolly Phonics Roxana felt there was something missing and with Jolly Phonics the students have the necessary tools to read and write in English.

    Roxana sees a big difference working with synthetic phonics and is convinced of the success in using Jolly Phonics. For that reason she would like to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with others.
