When did you realize you wanted to become an ESOL teacher? I realized I wanted to be an ESOL teacher when I was teaching first grade. 15/18 of my students were and LEP (Language English Proficient) level 1. (level 1 being low level 4 being high in English Language Development). Being a new first year teacher, I wanted to expand my knowledge on how to beset teach students whose second language was English. Therefore, I decided to get my Master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
What made you want to work at an elementary school? I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. My mom was an elementary school teacher and I loved going to school with her and visiting her classroom.

What do you think of Fairhill? Why do you think this is the right school for you? I love that Fairhill feels like home. I knew Fairhill was the right school for me when I took a tour of the building and everyone said hello and greeted and welcomed me with open arms!
