The Journey Begins

Hey teach!

Thanks for joining me on this insane educator journey we’re on!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

I’m hoping we’ll get to spend some time together, since we’re into differentiating for our students and all, so let me introduce myself!

I’m a coffee-loving, wine-drinking, English-as-a-Second Language teacher living in Minneapolis, MN! I’ve been in the educational field as a volunteer, a tutor, a teacher assistant, a co-teacher, a small group teacher, a student teacher, the list goes on and on.

My specialties are in teaching English, cultural pedagogy, and differentiation. One thing you’ll find about me: I am a STRONG BELIEVER that ELL strategies are not just for language-learners. They are awesome teaching strategies for EVERY KIND OF LEARNER.

ELL Strategies are not just for language-learners. They are awesome teaching strategies for EVERY kind of learner.

(Oh yes. I just quoted myself. Because it’s just that important!)

SOOOOO. My goal is simple. I have so many tools and systems that I want to get into other teachers’ hands. There are SO MANY WAYS you can set up your classroom culture, schedule, and the way you teach to make differentiation for all those 35, or 40, or god-forbid 50+ different humans in your room. Without going insane!

I’m super excited to co-teach with you this year! (Or yearS. Whatever works for you!)

P.S. I truly want you to find the strategies I share on this site useful! If there’s something you want to learn how to do, or you’re just not sure how to differentiate for it yet, send me a note below!
