Favorite Thing about Teaching ESL: Meeting students from diverse backgrounds is one of my favorite things about teaching ESL. I've had the opportunity to work with students from Mexico, China, Chile, Japan, and even India! ESL students range from hard-working field workers to medical doctors and they all share the same goal: to master the English language. Knowing that I can help so many students reach their goal of speaking English is what fuels my love and passion for ESL.

Favorite Thing about Teaching ESL: My favorite thing about teaching ESL is that now, I have the opportunity to teach, guide, understand and support students who are non-English speakers and come from backgrounds similar to mine.
