I am an English Language Development teacher in a public high school in Portland, OR, USA. I have also been a French, Spanish, Reading and Writing Workshop teacher and a Social Studies teacher. There is nothing I love more than seeing other teachers find the easy road to smiles and success for all kids in their language classroom -- student-driven CI!
