After 22 years of teaching ELA and ELL in middle school, I have created lessons for the ever-changing needs of teachers and students both for public school and homeschool. These lessons include handouts in English, Arabic, and Spanish, for which students in our low-income and high-populated ESL community have scored on and above the district averages. Bi-monthly CFA's are included in both English and Spanish as well.
I was awarded teacher-of-the-year in 2012, due to my lessons that cover all areas of the ELA Common Core, and the high interest, love of English, and scores that will enable the students' success in high school and beyond. Each lesson is tied to the core, and "I Can Statements" are included.
Students are able to work at their own pace, using Quizlet, HRW text and online resources, and mid-term testing.
