    This is my 29th year teaching in the Upper Merion Area School District and my 22nd year teaching English Language Development (ELD).   Throughout my career, I have taught students at every grade level and in many different settings, from a boarding school in Massachusetts to a rural school in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, Africa.

    While becoming proficient in English is necessary for school success, I like to remind my students that being bilingual or multilingual is an asset.  Maintaining home languages should be a priority!
