About Our Founder:

The founder of Teaching English in Italy, Sheila Corwin, has a lot of experience visiting, living, and working in Italy as not only a tourist, but an English language teacher and teacher trainer. She first came to Italy in 1984, where she spent the summer with an Italian family in the city of Parma as an exchange student. She later discovered that she had distant relatives in the Italian region of Liguria and made frequent trips to visit them in the years that followed. In 2002, she pursued her dream of living in Italy and worked in a private language school, teaching English in the city of Florence, for two years.

After deciding to settle in Florence, Italy, permanently, in 2007, Sheila served as academic director and principal trainer for a teacher training and cultural center that offers an ongoing four-week TEFL certificate course. Sheila holds an MA TESOL. Her goal is to provide training options and teaching opportunities to others who dream of teaching English in Italy.
