Hello! Welcome to my blog.
I’m Kelly and I currently teach English as a Second Language in an urban high school in the US. I teach beginner and intermediate ESL as well as the Regents ELA credit bearing course for ESL students. My classes run in 45 minute blocks with 15-20 students per class. I previously taught in the European Union and East Africa. I am an avid traveler and passionate advocate for our students. I love being an urban teacher and can’t see myself anywhere else.
I got interested in creating a blog as a place for ESL teachers to share their experiences and hopefully to help give you some ideas along the way. I envision this as a mix between educational discourse regarding ESL students, personal experiences in an urban environment and creative outlet for lesson ideas.
I hope you enjoy the site. Please feel free to comment or message me with any questions that you may have.
