I currently teach ESL in an elementary school in Hillsboro, Oregon. I work with students from Kindergarten through 6th grade (it's a little like having a one-room school house). I have also been a classroom teacher (for grades 2,3,4 and 5).
I believe in an integrated, vocabulary-based and systematic English language development approach.

I love being creative with my teaching and finding ways to help students LOVE learning, get involved and interested. I believe in teaching students authentic language and not watered-down, simplified language ESPECIALLY if they are a second language learner.
