Hello, Nyob zoo, Hola, As-salaam alaykum, Hallow, Salam, Hey
I have been teaching in St. Paul as an ELL teacher for 15 years. Currently, I service 4th grade at Farnsworth in the area of oral language and core subjects of reading, writing, math and science as an ELL teacher.
I strongly believe that language defines culture, lifestyle and thought. Because of this, I am humbled by the students' abilities to navigate between languages and proud to work with them everyday on their growth in language acquisition. I find myself excited by the possibilities that they face in the future that is theirs. My hope is that I can encourage them by sharing that excitement.
I am married to an educator and have two children who have both graduated from Saint Paul public schools. I remember the challenges and triumphs that both of my children experienced so I know that this is a journey that involves all of us. They are both students at the U of M with a good foundation in education from this district and us.
Among many things to be grateful for is being a grandmother of a curious six year old. I'm counting on her to keep me young. I also enjoy traveling, camping and restful days in warm, sunny places.
