Helpful hints for working with ESL students

TELPAS

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your hard work with telpas! Without your attention to details and you reading all of my emails (endless during telpas season, I know) we would not have survived:) Thank you again, I appreciate each and every one of you!

Academic Vocabulary

It is getting to be that busy time of the school year...I would love to come in and play some AVP games with your students and give you the "gift of time" for 20-30 minutes. Please let me know if you are interested and we'll schedule a day and time that will work for us both!
