I have the best job in the world because my students are absolutely amazing. Every day they surprise me and inspire me. I am an ESL teacher and most of my students are recent arrivals to the United States. Some are happy to be here, and others have a hard time because the choice was not theirs and they miss home.
They often have huge odds stacked up against them, yet they persevere, and do it with such big smiles on their faces.
Not a day goes by that they don't impress with me with their intelligence and determination.
Most of my students are new arrivals to this country and the books they can read in English are babyish and not interesting to them. Being able to offer them books in their native language at their interest level is crucial!
My students are always so excited when they see high interest books in their native language!
It makes such a difference when the books are engaging to them! These books will be used every day during independent reading time. My students won't be embarrassed as they often are with book below their level.
