I have been teaching regular-English speaking education for the past 19 years. I have always worked with little ones from disadvantaged backgrounds. Many of their struggles were in reading and reading text that is on level. Well all my students come in day 1 at the same age but unfortunately not at the same reading level. Some come in a low as .5 (5 months) or as high as 4.0 (4 years). So I have always worked with children with a range of possibilities. Currently I am about to embark on a new adventure which is ESL with young learners from non-English speaking countries. I am so excited to start this journey and carryover everything I learn back to my regular classroom.
