TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY TEACHING STYLE

ESL students in the Middle School grades have unique needs. It may take them a little bit longer to speak English than younger elementary school students. At the same time, they have received years of literacy instruction in their first language. Although they have often made the transition from "learning to read," to "reading to learn," ESL students often still need some explicit phonics instruction to gain confidence in their reading skills. With a little bit of time and effort, students in ESL are able to enjoy the same Common Core instruction as their native speaking peers. All of my lessons plans are guided by my goal to build an international classroom community where students are proud to be multilingual.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have taught both regular education and ESL. As a specialist it is my job to help my students acquire the English language while mastering grade-level content. I started out as a middle school Social Studies and Literature teacher so I love the content areas (especially history and geography) as well as helping students become stronger readers. My recipe for a successful ESL curriculum is one that empowers students to speak English while becoming stronger readers and writers and mastering the Common Core Standards. This TPT store is a resource for Middle School Classroom teachers and ESL teachers looking to adapt their lesson planning and curriculum for English language learners.
