Are you ready for the exciting task of teaching kids English?

Our goal is to find people who are talented at teaching, can motivate children to learn English and are able to connect and empathise with kids. Fluency in English, a dynamic personality, professionalism, empathy and passion for the job are the defining characteristics of the teachers on our team.

    Hello! My name is Misty McAnally. I have lived in Belgium since 2010 with my husband, our three children and all of our animals. I have been teaching English professionally since 2012. I've always loved working with children. I grew up in my mother's daycare and eventually opened one of my own while I was still in the USA. Throughout my life, I've been a daycare provider, preschool assistant, nanny and teacher. Teaching is certainly where my passion lies. There is nothing quite like that thrill you get when you see the flash of understanding in your student's eyes. I'm so excited to be part of the story of Kids&Us Hannut. The methodology and materials are among the best that I've seen in my many years of working with children. I also have a very busy life when I'm not teaching. I love to sew and embroider, I make bobbin lace, and I bake. I also love to dress up in my homemade medieval outfits and take part in medieval reenactment events in and around Belgium. I really look forward to meeting your little treasures and helping them learn my native language.

    Hi! I’m Lucie, I’m a Psychology student and an English lover! I felt in love with English when I was a child watching tv shows and movies. I also enjoyed reading lots of books in English. Before leaving for university I had the chance to be chosen to represent my school in an international camp in Norway. That experience really made me realize how important English is when it comes to traveling. When I got to university I started teaching English to Erasmus students and found out how much I loved teaching. Working with Kids&Us is really an honor to me, not only do I get to play an important role in the lives of children who will make our future, but I also have the chance to share the passion I have for such a beautiful and useful language. Back to school season is almost there! Get ready for an amazing year of learning!

    Hello, My name is Tinuke Olafimihan I originally hail from England, but have been living in Belgium since 2001 with my three children. I am a professionally trained singer and have been teaching Singing since 1999 and English since 2009. I have always enjoyed teaching and learning and am excited to get into the methodology of stories and songs that Kids&Us use. I believe that the acquisition of language by children is very important and am looking forward to being part of the beginning of this project. I am especially interested in sharing and learning with the kids who will be taking this journey along with the rest of the Kids&Us team. In my free time I love to garden, read and cook, I am also a self-proclaimed Trekkie (Star Trek) and Marvel comics and film fan. I am a life long Sci-Fi and Fantasy reader and am always looking for new authors. Finally I have a total passion for music, particularly vocal music and theatre and how it can be used in different ways both in performing and teaching. See you in September !

    Cedric

    My name is Cédric and I'm 34 years old. For the last 10 years I have worked as a professional musician in several bands. I have also worked as a music animator for the last 3 years. But lets start from the beginning! I learned English with my mum and my sister from the age of three, and in addition to our weekly practice we had the chance to spend a month every summer with an au pair. This particular method gave me the chance to hear a different accent every year ( American, Australian, British etc...).Later, as I studied percussion with many foreign teachers, I discovered many different learning methods. The Indian chanting way can't be more different than what's currently done in our academic schools. When I started giving music lessons, I moved from one school to another, always adapting my pedagogical method to the type of school or to the special needs of my students. Last year I completed my training with an immersive workshop based on using creativity to be able to get the maximum ideas out of a group while having a lot of fun. That is perhaps why I'm so happy to join the Kids&Us team and get the chance to work with this unique method and watch all these kids grow up with a second language in their pocket.

  • Olina

    Hi! My name is Olina Harris. This will be my first year teaching with Kids&Us so I'm very excited for this new school year to begin. I went to Weston Road High School in Stafford, England and arrived in Belgium in 1994. My Dad being English I grew up in an English speaking home. I love the English language, I find it fun to use and to listen to. I also love travelling and have noticed that understanding and speaking English comes in very handy when globe trotting. I love watching films in their original version, which is often English and I prefer reading books in English as well. I used to work at the reception desk of a hotel and therefore used my English skills every day in my job. I don't have any children of my own but nearly all of my friends do and I love playing with them and taking care of them in general. I love it when I can play a part in their development and observe them changing as they grow up. I remember quite well being a child myself and I find that I often relate to them easily. I think this is why I often have a special relationship with children. I love simple things like going on long walks in the countryside, talking to my two cats, cooking meals for my friends and reading nearly all kinds of books. I'm really looking forward to spending this year playing, singing, having fun and of course learning English with your sweeties in my class!
