I have taught all elementary grades in bilingual and ESL programs for over 25 years. I have worked in Wisconsin, California, New York, Virginia, Connecticut and North Carolina. I have had the privilege to work with wonderful children from all over the world and teachers who want to see those children succeed!
I want to know where my students are, where they need to go, and the best way to take them there. And have fun along the way!
