Ways to connect our Reception ELL Students to Learning in the Classroom

Target Audience



Erica Campbell

I've been with the District for 15 years.  I have an Educational Minor in LD, Post Baccalaureate in Supporting Diverse Learners, experience teaching Intensive ELL and a lot of passion to share what works and talk about what doesn't when it comes to teaching our reception level English students.
