I've been teaching ESOL at the elementary level since 2005. I love teaching ELL students. With language learning needs being so different, from one student to the next, each school year is unique with its own set of challenges. ESOL students in my area are expected to learn English while learning the grade level curriculum. When I create materials for my students, I always think to myself, "Am I making this comprehensible?" No matter the level of language proficiency, or the educational background of a student, it's my job to present the curriculum in a meaningful way. It can definitely be challenging at times, but so rewarding when I see my students being successful, and their confidence growing. I love my job!
I firmly believe in the Gradual Release method: I do, we do, you do.
