My big passion is language acquisition. I started my career as a 4th grade Spanish Immersion teacher, teaching all the core subjects in Spanish to native English speakers. From that position, I moved to a Title 1 school where I was able to use all my immersion teaching skills, in reverse, to support all the ELLs in my classroom. I've realized though that all of the strategies I use to help my ELLs gain greater access to the content and build their understanding are strategies that really support and engage ALL learners. I'm inspired to help teachers deliver their content in a way that is comprehensible and engaging for ALL the diverse learners in their classrooms.
