Lucky us! In this inspiring and thoughtful book, Emelie and Tess take us inside their reading, writing, and content-area workshops where we see (and hear!) how young English language learners thrive in rigorous, joyful learning communities.

About the Author(s)

Teaching came naturally to Emelie. "After having three daughters and foster children, having a child care center in my home, and being a Brownie leader, teaching Sunday School, and volunteering in classrooms, I found I was naturally teaching all the time and loved it! I went back to school to finish my degree and to learn how to teach.

Tess Pardini, a National Board Certified Teacher, has over twenty years of experience working with English language learners.
