Becoming an ESL, Bilingual/Bicultural teacher one day at a time. This site is for future teachers and teachers of English Language Learners/ CLD. You will find resources in English and in Spanish that can serve as a guide in your journey.
I was going through some pictures on my phone and found this picture (below) from last Summer. This picture brings up so many good memories. In June 2015 I took My ESL Literacy Practicum (TESL 401 is part of your ESL endorsement) I at Centennial Elementary School in Evans. I remember being very nervous because I had no idea of how my mentor teacher would be like.
During the Summer School there are less students and the schedule is from 7:45 p.m- 1:00 p.m. One suggestion I would give you is to be open for anything on the first day. I worked with a substitute teacher the first week because my mentor teacher was taking a summer course through District 6 (Yes, teachers take courses doing Summer)
