My Students

I work with students from all over the world. I love learning from them as much as I love teaching them.

My students come from all over the world and speak many different languages.

They all have one thing in common: they're learning English. I have students who already speak multiple languages, and this is adding to their linguistic repertoire.

Some of my students are in school for the first time- in high school no less- and are doing a fantastic job catching up to their peers.

My Project

In the first semester of the school year, students work on developing academic conversation skills. This works best when we have a topic which everyone has knowledge about. While they are reading this book they will engage in dialogue. We will read each chapter and then discuss and compare what is happening in the current election in small groups and as a class. Having background knowledge is so crucial when teaching conversation skills with an academic purpose and these books will allow my students to understand more about this important topic!
