Hey Guys! Welcome to ESOL II and Academic Literacy. I am so excited to start this school year. I know things are really different right now, and it is not what any of us are used to, but I know that together we can still learn English and find success. I want to send a special welcome to those of you who also had me last year. Please know that I missed you a great deal and I am thrilled to have you again. Right now, it is not safe for us to be in the classroom together, but I am so happy I will at least get to see your beautiful smiling faces on zoom.
Together, we will learn how to navigate virtual education and hopefully I can also help you in any way I can with your other classes as well. Please let me or Mr. Casares know if you are struggling or if you feel like you need extra help. And I cannot wait until we can all be here together at MAC.
For those of you who may not know, I graduated from The University of Florida in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Linguistics and a focus on Second Language Acquisition. I have spent the past 9 years teaching all levels of English and both levels of ESOL and Academic Literacy. I love teaching English. I understand that English is the language of access in this country, and it is my mission to help my students develop their Enlgish prociency, while honoring their home language and native culture, in order to have their best chance at success. I am thrilled to be a part of the rich tradition that is Macarthur High School. Go Brahmas!!
