2012-13 will be my twelfth year teaching English Language Development at the middle school. I am the wife of a middle school science teacher (just imagine what our dinnertime conversations revolve around), mother of two children just beginning their journey through K-12, and second language learner who can find every possible route around the subjunctive.
Education policy issues that get under my skin tend to revolve around what 21st
century education should include and look like, how our decisions as adults
support (or not) kids'learning, and how we as an institution and as a
nation address the challenge of educating an evermore ethnically and
linguistically diverse student body.
