Daisy Stocker B.Ed., M.Ed. taught in the British and Canadian school systems in different capacities over many years. George Stocker D.D.S. practiced Dentistry and taught in hospitals, colleges and universities. In 1990 they left their Canadian careers and traveled to Czechoslovakia to teach and assist in establishing the first private language school in the country. During the following years the Stockers began the development of the Children's ESL Curriculum Series. Initially a variety of games and activities were tried with the children and their interest in science fiction became apparent. As a result of their input our Children's ESL Curriculum offers science fiction content from Book 2B through seven books to Book 5B. In order to gain an understanding of the needs and interests of Asian Children the Stockers taught for a time at an ESL school in Hong Kong. This series is presently in use in many schools around the world. The Stockers have also taught and given workshops in Mexico, Brazil, Ukraine, Hungary, Hong Kong, and Northern India. They make their home in Victoria, Canada.
