Hello my name is Chloe Matheson. This is my third year teaching ELD at Federal Heights Elementary. I am delighted to work specifically with grades 1 and 3-5 this year. My journey working with English Learners began in 2014 when I moved to South Korea to teach English. During my two years abraod, I learned about new cultures and languages. I also experienced the stress and frustration of not understanding what is going on around me--a challenge I know many of my students today experience as well. I learned the importance of self-advocacy. This is something I would like to pass on to my Language Learners. My goal as a teacher is always to encourage my students to be curious and adventurous life-long learners.
