I teach K-5 English as a Second Language in Tennessee. That means I teach each grade level for one hour each in many content areas. Teaching elementary ESL classes gives me unique insights into how all students learn. I specialize in the integration of Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking in all content areas with best practices in ESL, SpEd and Regular Ed. Instruction and lesson planning.
