Zoo Siab Txais Tos!

My name is Amanda Pollard.  I teach English as a Second Language (ESL) at Locust Elementary School.  I have been teaching and tutoring ESL for ten years, and I have been working in the school system for about fifteen years.  I have taught in the public school system and at the community collegeI love working with English Learners of all ages, and helping them learn to speak, listen, read and write English.  I have a degree from Appalachian State University in Elementary Education, and I am also certified to teach ESL. I have been working really hard for the past few years to learn Spanish, so that I can better communicate with my students and their parents.  Sometimes I can say more than I understand, but I think that can be part of learning a second language.  I love my job, and I feel lucky to get to work with such wonderful students every day!
