Wendi Pillars

To enhance morphing English as a Second Language (ESL) responsibilities from classroom teacher to coach in a high school with high academic and linguistic needs, Ms. Pillars will attend a WIDA national language learning conference. Ms. Pillars will explore the latest findings in language development and learning strategies and bring them back to Jordan-Matthews High School. Upon returning to her school, Ms. Pillars will share new instructional methods with her colleagues, including the use of “edusketches” to optimize students’ visual learning propensities.
