Tim Sensei

Tim has lived and taught ESL in Japan for the last eight years.  When you visit his TpT store, Tim Sensei, you will see the brightest and crispest resource covers that I have ever seen.  He creates his own beautiful clip art and uses songs to help students learn the English language.  Tim has spread his talents to include a website, The Magic Crayon (www.themagiccrayon.com) that he owns with three of his teaching friends.  In his TPT store, you will find large numbers of ESL resources such as songs, lesson plans, flash cards, and posters. 

I think one of the wonderful things about TpT is that you can admire and purchase resources from someone on the other side of the world.  It looks like his students are lucky to have Tim on their side.
