Teacher Spotlight: Jessie Mader

Posted by Heather Gooch on 9/4/2018

We are taking a moment to shine the spotlight on Jessica Mader, 8th grade science teacher for her collaboration with our district liaison Jose Almeida to meet the needs of English language learners in her classroom.  

She has put a list together of common academic terms and sent it to Jose to make a glossary of definitions in Spanish and flashcards available for her students to help with language acquisition.   See her example of some academic terms.

 
Jose is willing to put together a glossary for all academic terms in your subject areas as well.  Just email him a list of common academic terms in your subject areas and he will put together a glossary with definitions for our students.  
 
Great job Jessica and Jose!
