ESL Teacher - 2022 to Present
I provide group lessons in English as a Second Language (ESL) to a population of mostly Latinx students. Throughout my experiences teaching ESL, I have observed that the quickest students are especially adept at linking cognates, building on previous knowledge, and assessing the meanings of new words through context clues. I now utilize the Future textbook series, as provided by my school, and incorporate my observations into the curricula to help students achieve their goals.
