Empowering English Language Learners
This year is a busy one! With seven different classes and five textbook free curricula, it's bound to be exciting.

This was in part due to the time I spent planning activities, but also to my fantastic students and a bit of help from a small rubber chicken. It's amazing what a little laughter can do!
