Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Maria Nerizza S. Veloso-Liyanage. Such a long name, right? (I know!)
I was born in Philippines and received a degree in Secondary Education (English Specialization) from Philippine Normal University and completed Master of Education in Leadership and School Improvement at Universiti Brunei Darussalam.
Snippets of Wonders??? Yes, I chose that name for my blog because I want to share some of the beautiful extracts of my life and my passions, which for me, are total wonders! I love teaching, travelling, coffee, arts, music, and writing. I love life and it is such a blessing to be able to blog about the things that I love doing!
I have been teaching for over 8 years now. What guides me in teaching is the principle of engage, explore and evolve. I like to engage my students in conversations because by doing so I am able to allow them to explore and make mistakes. These mistakes help them improve and become better users of the English language.
When I am not teaching, you may catch me engaged in photography, writing on my blog, reading articles or watching films. I love travelling to various places because it helps me understand the lifestyle, mentality and language of other people. I am an art and culture enthusiast and always take time to try different cuisines and recipes. These hobbies and interests enhance and cultivate my teaching styles.
Allow me to share with you Snippets of Wonders!
