Featured Presentation: Inspiring Greatness and Success for English Learners
One of my favorite parts was stepping off stage and engage with the audience and answering their questions. The audience was engaged and wanting to know more on how to support their ELs. There were also some educators with experiences like mine who shared a little bit about their connection to my story.
