About Us

Chuck and Kathy - 2Welcome to MagicTimeKids!

Hello, fellow teachers!  Welcome to our blog, MagicTimeKids.  Our names are Kathleen Kampa and Charles Vilina (please call us Kathy and Chuck).  Chuck and I are now celebrating our 28th year as a married couple, with two sons aged 26 and 22.  In addition, we are co-authors of three courses for young learners of English published by Oxford University Press.  You can view these in our Publications page.  We also have published songs for children. Most importantly, Chuck and I share a passion for teaching and have actively taught young learners for over 25 years.  We are in the classroom throughout the year, and continue to discover new ways to motivate our students. We love to share our ideas with teachers through our blog, through webinars, and at workshops all around the world.

Teaching is more than a job . . . it’s a vocation.  We are honored to be part of a profession that has the potential to touch so many lives.  The responsibility is great, but so is the opportunity to create a better world for our children.

We invite you to join us in a continuing dialogue of great ideas, activities, and inspirations.  We have as much to learn from you as you do from us.  Thanks for sharing!

With our best wishes,

Kathy and Chuck Dot
