I am excited to be your teacher for ESL during your middle school years. My family moved to NC from KY in 2014. We love living here. I have a husband, two daughters, and two dogs named Coco and Mindy. I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a Masters Degree in Education. I have taught ESL and Social Studies since 1999 in all grades K-12. I did my student teaching in Quito, Ecuador and got to travel throughout Ecuador and Peru while I was in South America. I also lived and worked in Honduras while my mother was teaching at a bilingual school there. I truly enjoy working with students from diverse backgrounds. I look forward to helping my students achieve academic success while developing the English language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Be ready to have fun and work hard while learning English together!
