RUSD Educating English Learners

Join the conversation!

This site was created to support our educators who teach our English Language Learners in K-12 classrooms. My goal and focus is to continue to improve the instruction of our students who are learning English as a second or other language through listening, speaking , reading, and writing in all content areas.

Teachers Coming Together To Grow In Their Learning...

Project AMP!

Teachers came together to kickoff the first workshop of the year! We are really excited to continue learning and sharing with teachers across our district around best practices to support and enhance our students learning journey as well as our own! Check out our Project AMP page to find out more about what we do.


Teachers Tech Talk!

  • How can we best use technology to enhance 21st century skills that our students will need to develop and practice?
  • How can we best use technology to move from static to dynamic practices that will empower our students to love learning?
  • How can we best use technology to support and inspire our English Language Learners throughout their English language acquisition journey?
  • How can we best use technology to create a bridge across schools and open classrooms doors to foster collaboration and learning between teachers and students everywhere?
