As the ESL instructor for the Mascoutah School District, I have the privilege of working with English Learners of all ages. Prior to coming to MSD #19, I worked as an ESL instructor in a large and diverse middle school in Georgia. After working with 7th and 8th grade ELs, I transitioned to elementary school where I taught 5th grade. I hold a B.S. in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, a Master's in Inclusive Education (TESOL), and an Education Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction.
