Betty O’Connor-Williams

BettyMumbai

Betty studied in both India and America achieving her BA at Bombay University and her ECE from Palomar Community College, San Marcos and certification for Train the Trainer by American TESOL; before she began to teach early years. She became the lead teacher working with 3 and 4 year olds in Virginia, USA until 2009 and returned to India.

On her return to India, Betty opened her own learning centre called Precious Lil’ Ones Preschool, located in Mumbai, whereby an after school programme called Phonicland was introduced; practicing the Jolly Phonics methodology. This programme greatly benefitted children 4-6 years of age, most of them non-native English speakers. These children learned to speak, read, write and spell in English by using Jolly Phonics. Because of this Betty then implemented Jolly Phonics as the curriculum in her preschool. To date, Betty has taught over 600 3 and 4 years olds with Jolly Phonics.

Betty has come across ladies from vernacular backgrounds, with limited English who are wanting to learn the Jolly Phonics method to teach their children at home, and to begin small classes at home to earn an income. This impressed Betty so much, she wanted to reach out to adults in India with the Jolly Phonics method, so that more children can benefit from such a successful programme.

“Jolly Phonics is a fun way to teach and a fun way to learn. When children can read, write and spell they have the power to move forward.”
