"International educators work with students at all levels of language acquisition and have to find ways of making their content lessons comprehensible and appropriately challenging for all students.

 

Understanding what multilingual students can do at different levels of language acquisition will help educators know how to scaffold instruction to stretch their students’ listening, speaking, reading and writing skills."

Beth has over 30 years of experience as a language educator and holds a Master’s Degree in Multicultural Teacher Education. She has worked with early childhood, elementary, middle, high school and adult language learners in rural, urban, suburban, and international school settings. Beth currently provides professional development, coaching, and consulting with schools around the world focused on providing equitable education for multilingual learners.
