New York State Reading Association

On April 20th I presented “ESL Students Need Motivation to Learn and Grow”  to the Association’s Poster Session members.  It was a joy to be talking about something dear to my heart: helping English as a A Second Language Students improve their English communications skills. When asked what I would tell new teachers in this content area, I replied as follows:  Children coming from other countries need to be motivated to learn English with patience and kindness.  You have learned your craft. Now, let your heart guide you to greater results.
