I am very excited to begin my fifteenth year teaching ESL. While I've been teaching at LMS for six years, I have been moved around Lincoln County as ELL populations change. I began my career in New York in 2002 teaching family literacy and ESL classes, after receiving my Bachelors in elementary education at St. Joseph's College. I instantly realized I immensely enjoyed and valued teaching (and being taught by) people from different cultures and decided to pursue a Masters in English Language Learning (ELL). The courses in language acquisition, research and literacy led to my K-12 ELL certification. In 2016 I earned my Masters of Science in Curriculum and Instruction to better instruct my culturally diverse students.
