Ms. Lindsay

P.S. 112 Jose C. Barbosa School

“I am an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher. I help students who are newly arrived to the United States feel comfortable and welcome in our learning environment. It is extremely important to me that my students see our classroom as a place to feel safe so that they are better able to learn and express themselves freely.

This will empower the students to attack reading with a valuable tool to help them learn English. Learn more »
