ESL Library Celebrates Small Business Week 2018

Small, but Growing…

It’s Small Business Week in Canada, and we’re proud to be one of the 1.3 million small businesses celebrating. The ESL Library team has always been small, but we’ve doubled in size this year and have big plans for 2019 and beyond. We’d like to offer a warm welcome to all of our new staff.

We’ve grown so much, we didn’t all make the photo. Our team also includes Ben (CEO), Tanya (head editor), Dan (product manager), Eduardo (head coder), Marta (HR), and our newest team member Ginny (office administrator).

Small Can Be Big

We are only a team of 16 but our materials are used around the world in more than 10,000 schools.

Each year, we attend several ELT conferences and enjoy meeting teachers face-to-face to talk about their ever-changing needs for English language materials. This week, we exhibited and presented at TESOL in Columbus, Ohio. Next week, we’re heading to Detroit and Toronto. We hope to see some of you at our upcoming ELT events.
