Hello, (Merhaba) Friends. This is Turkish for hello. I'm Berzah Williams. This is my fifth year teaching Newcomer ESL students. I have taught K-5th graders. I enjoy being a Newcomer teacher because I enjoy learning about the different cultures and languages of my many students. So far, I have had students from Afghanistan, Sudan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Tanzania, Egypt, Congo, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Thailand. I am an Air Force spouse and like to travel (CONUS and OCONUS). Being a traveler, I had the opportunity of working for NATO and engaging with military/civilian members from 16 countries. I enjoy being an active person (swimming and running) and hiking to experience nature. With my travels and interactions with many cultures, I have gained an appreciation for respecting the differences in people. I'm looking forward this semester to bringing the American culture to my Newcomer students and growing from learning from them.
