Zoo Siab Txais Tos!
My name is Amanda Pollard. I teach English Learners (E.L.) at Locust Elementary School. I have been teaching and tutoring E.L. 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 college. I 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!
