ThinkShare.  Inspire. 

These are my guideposts for Teaching English as a Second Language. 

I bring a wealth of experiences to my teaching and consider myself as much a learner as a teacher at every moment.  Thinking about my students’ needs, sharing what I know and my students know, and inspiring students to communicate confidently, correctly and appropriately are my overarching goals.  Under that arch, teaching and learning are meant to be challenging, satisfying and, yes, fun.  All language skills are important:  reading, writing, listening and speaking and all aspects of language combine to create fluency:  grammar, vocabulary, pronounciation and appropriacy.
