I’ve been a teacher for 12 years and on my second year as an ENL teacher at MS 118. All ENL students feel encouraged when they are provided a class space that is consistently organized and containing rich resources that they can make connections with their diverse backgrounds. Also, knowing each student’s interests, learning styles and needs is an opportunity to prepare fun and creative ways for them to become great learners of the language. I was born and raised in another country and know 2 other languages, so I share similar experiences with my students. I’m committed to fulfilling my teaching beliefs and ENL practices at MS 118. I’m thankful to be a part of this wonderful school community.
