Burlington High School
Hometown:
Goodland, KS
Class Information:
Students per Class: 35
Class Description:
I teach students whose primary language is not English. We have about 70 ESL students in our school, primarily students whose parents or grandparents were refugees who relocated to the United States.
Position:
ESL teacher
Needs:
I would love to get my students more proficient and comfortable in using technology. Most are awed by any technology and are incredibly motivated when it is incorporated into our lessons. What I wish for are tools to help my students read and motivation to help my students write.
Personal Information:
About Me:
I have been teaching English as a second language for more than 10 years, including a two-year stint in the Peace Corps in China! I am a former journalist-turned-teacherin my attempts to change the world.

BS Journalism/BA German Language and Lit.--University of Kansas; MA TESOL--Teachers College, Columbia University.
Favorite Books:
My Life as a Whale by Dyan Smith

Why Do I Teach?:
I teach because I love that Ah-Ha moment! I grew up in rural Kansas with a desire to see the world, to make it beyond my comfort zone. I was a foreign exchange student twice to Germany, then I went into the Peace Corps later in life. My goal has always been to get people to see the world rather than just what is outside their back door. This led me to teaching, to help students learn English. This is the kind of help I wish I would have had as an exchange student.
ESL Enrollment:: 40 %
Number of students I teach:: 35 students
