Meet the Team
There are three of us who manage ESL-Library.com. In addition to us three, we have several wonderful writers and artists who work with us on contract and have been with us for many years.
Ben Buckwold, President, Red River Press
Ben is the founder of Red River Press. He is involved in much of the daily management at ESL-Library.com, and also oversees the development of all the new projects at the company.
Marta Solodun, Managing Director, Red River Press
Marta joined Red River Press in 2008. She's the managing director of ESL-Library.com and our sister site EnglishAvenue.com. Marta handles all our financial, managerial and sales matters at the company. She also plays a big role in the creation and development of all our English iPhone apps.
Tara Benwell, Director of all things Media
Tara started at ESL-Library as a lesson developer. She continues to write a lot of the content on the site, but she has taken on a greater role as our Media Director. If you see us on facebook, twitter, or in the ELT blogosphere, it's likely Tara pushing the buttons. She runs our social media strategy and keeps us heavily involved in the ELT community.
Tanya Trusler, Chief Editor
Tanya, of Editing to a T, became our chief editor in 2011. She edits our lessons for accuracy and consistency. She also writes a weekly blog post for us about grammar or teaching advice, and is starting to develop some of our lessons.
Nadine Lowes, Office Manager
Nadine works with us on contract as our office manager. She keeps us extremely well organized with the many projects we have going on at the company. What would we do without her?
Billy Kiely, Graphic Designer
Billy, of Billy Kiely Design, has been working with Red River Press for many years. He has played a major role in recently rebranding the image of RRP and ESL-Library and has been a huge asset to our company.
ESL Library Contributors, Writers, Artists, Editors, Programmers
ESL-Library contracts with talented writers, authors, artists, and illustrators all over the world. We have freelancers in France, Spain, Poland, Japan, Brazil, USA, Canada, and Korea helping to keep our site very well-travelled.
Why should I join?
Our goal at ESL-Library is to continually produce and offer high quality lesson plans and flashcards for English teachers. We know that many teachers are over-worked and out of time. We love making resources that make your teaching life a whole lot easier. (Find out more about us...)
