Doh! I can’t believe I missed that!

When I did my review of the 19th ELL/EFL/ELD Blog Carnival, I left out a wonderful piece by Shelly Terrell about growing up in the U.S. in an immigrant family. She does a brilliant job of contextualizing the personal in the larger policy and legal issues of the different times she writes about. This is a must read for teachers of immigrant children. You can check out all of the articles at Flecha’s blog and tell me what other gems I missed.

Howdy! I teach sixth grade at an elementary school in Sacramento, CA. I started my career in Oakland, Ca, and moved here to Sacramento in 2001.

My goals are:

  1. To reflect on how I am teaching, and how effective my practices are;
  2. To reflect on my profession, and how effective various practices are;
  3. To understand the political and cultural context that we teach in; and,
  4. To network with other like-minded educators.

To help me reach my goals, I use this blog as a place for me to reflect on best practices, and the practices I’m (trying to) putting in place in my classroom.

I can be contacted here.
