About Mrs.Koken

I was born and grew up in Turkey as the second child of four siblings who are all teachers at the moment.  I have a degree in Foreign Language Education from Middle East Technical University and a Master's degree in English Language Teaching from Presidency University. I am also certified in English Language Teaching to Adults by Cambridge University.  I worked as an English Teacher, Head of English Language Department (ESL), and Middle School Assistant Principal in different parts of the world. I have been in education for 12 years and serving as an ESL teacher at MSE for the last two years.
As a life-long English language learner myself, I have great empathy with my students and passion for learning different languages and cultures. I work closely with each student’s teachers to provide our EL students with the greatest possible opportunity to achieve academic success.  I am still in the process of learning Spanish so that I can communicate with the parents of my students. Next time when we meet, let me practice with you!
I am also a proud mother of a 6-year old who is going to start 1st grade this year! 
Looking forward to another successful year for all of our language learners!
