Janet Bianchini was born in England and lived there all her life up until 3 years ago, when she moved to the relatively unknown region of Abruzzo, in Italy. She is a lifelong teacher educator with over 30 years experience in English Language Teaching. She retains the same passion for her job as when she first started her career in 1979 in Madrid, Spain.
Janet’s areas of interest include using technology in her lessons, learning about Web 2.0 tools and effective ways of using images. When she is not in the classroom face2face or teaching online, she enjoys writing her blog – Janet’s Abruzzo Edublog, and working on various Internet-based projects. She also loves spending time in her rather wild garden, tending to olive trees, surrounded by her menagerie of 12 Anglo-Italian furkids. This motley crew and the surrounding rugged scenery provide Janet with a constant source of inspiration for her lessons.
