Tracy from Utah
Hi! I teach at an international school where most of the students speak 2+ languages and were born in other countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Central and South America. As you can imagine we struggle to communicate with families, but nevertheless we are appreciated by the community and our teachers, paras and staff are dedicated to the success of these new immigrants. The school is located in South Salt Lake City, Utah. I live in Pleasant Grove, about 35 miles south of there. I’m starting my 5th year and am just now starting to feel like I have any idea how to best teach them. I’m always looking for new ways to engage them and capitalize on their language abilities, while helping them learn English.
