Teacher Dann Bass shares how 51Talk made an impact on his life and how he has also done the same with his students and fellow teachers.
“Teaching is a passion. If you find it in you, grow it, and take hold of it. Use it to your full potential because you will never know the impact you can leave in your students’ lives,” says teacher Dann Bass. For him, teaching at 51Talk offers him an opportunity to not only help his students but also his fellow teachers.
In fact, he is the speaker for the second webinar episode of 51TEDTalk entitled 51TEDTalk: RealiYES! During the webinar, teacher Dann Bass shared the importance of using realia, props, and teaching aids, and how to use them effectively. Since joining the platform, he has been making full use of the opportunities from 51Talk, such as the webinar, to make an impact on those around him.
However, before reaching his current success with 51Talk, he was an entrepreneur whose business venture unfortunately failed. This led him to look for other opportunities and was referred to 51Talk by his neighbor. Since then, he has been teaching on the platform for 20 months and counting. Since he joined, he has also made a lot of progress as a 51Talk teacher.
Currently, he is a Master Teacher B, one of the highest levels for 51Talk teachers. He is also an H5 and SK-12-tagged teacher, which means he has attended a lot of training and has been awarded the highest teacher tag on the platform. In addition, he leads a PHBEE club called Cavite Brimstone. Lastly, watch out for him on 51Talk’s social media channels as he will also be participating in future campaigns.
Outside of 51Talk, teacher Dann Bass is a simple but active person who enjoys photography, digital art, toy collecting, and ultrarunning. Thanks to 51Talk, he has time for his passions outside of his teaching schedule.
Moreover, he is grateful for the opportunity that 51Talk gave him. Through his lesson fees, he has earned enough to pay back his bank loan after coming from a failed business venture. Because of 51Talk, he was also able to invest in equipment that is now helping him to perform better as an online English teacher.
Looking back at his experience as one of the first teacher-influencers for 51TEDTalk, he says, “To be one of the first teacher-influencers for 51TEDTalk was really an amazing experience. It was nerve-wracking at first because I am not sure what the audience will say about my talk, but I am happy that it turned out pretty well. The comments were overwhelming and inspiring. It made me realize that I can really do more.”
Currently, being able to impart his knowledge and talk to his students has become his motivation to continue teaching on the platform. He says he loves interacting with people and it fuels the fire inside him.
Teacher Dann Bass would not be the person he is today without the impact that 51Talk has made on him. He says, “My self-confidence has grown tremendously. My shift from in-person to virtual communication prepared me for these current times. And to date, I am able to fully enjoy a work-life balance.”
For those who wish to make an impact and become 51Talk teachers, teacher Dann Bass encourages you to try it out, saying, “The learnings that you will be able to impart is a gem to others. Not everyone is given the opportunity to study and learn, so do your part in building better lives.”
