Mrs. Liz Fredrickson, ESL Teacher

Growing up I always knew I wanted to be a teacher.  My mom was a teacher and I didn't think there was another job out there that spoke to me like teaching.  I was determined to follow in my mother's footsteps and come home each night telling about what her wonderful students did each day and what amazing things they had learned.  I couldn't imagine anything better.  In high school I spent my time working with as many volunteer jobs that focused on children.  I couldnt' get enough.  I even worked in a child care facility each morning before I went to school.  As I entered college at The Univeristy of North Carolina at Asheville, I jumped into the education department right away and spent almost every  moment I had working with children in some way.  I majored in psychology to understand children, I took classes in education, ranging from elementary to high shcool.  I didn't want to limit myself to any one thing.  I worked hard and finally granduated.  I spent the next three years teaching in Burke County, working with third and fifth grade students.  After taking a few years off, I went back into teaching, but in a different fashion.  I entered the classroom as an ESL teacher.  I now work with students who are either new to the country or who may struggle with the difficutly of the English language.  I adore my students and work with amazing schools.  I am a very, very happy teacher.
