Joy Morris has been teaching for about 30 years. Having begun teaching in a comprehensive school, Joy wanted to travel more and that is how the world of ELT came about. Since then Joy has worked for the British Council in Portugal and Spain, completed an MA in Applied Linguistics at Lancaster University and more recently worked on co-authoring, Here's Patch the Puppy children's book. Joanne Ramsden studied at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. Tired of studying Joanne began traveling, after returning to England, Joanne attended a four-week TEFL course before continuing her travels again. Now a primary school teacher in Spain Joanne has found this very rewarding and has recently co-authored, Here's Patch the Puppy.
