I have been teaching English Language Learners for seven years, primarily at the elementary level. I help plan for our school's third and fourth grade literacy teams, assisting teachers with scaffolding for ELLs, incorporating Thinking Maps, and unit planning.
I teach my students through hands on, meaningful interactions with language and vocabulary with the help of project-based learning and activities that make learning FUN!
* BA from the University of Virginia in French and Art History * MEd from George Mason University in Curriculum and Instruction/ESL Instruction
Outside the classroom, I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, and spending time with my wonderful husband and our son.
