English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher in Cheyenne:
"There is joy in teaching ESL!"
Enjoy the students and learn all you can about their home, family and cultural background. The children I teach are filled with joy and enthusiasm. They and their families have made me a better person and brought great joy and fulfillment in my life. I would never want to teach anyone else besides English language learners.
