In this episode, I chat with Nicole Lipps. We discuss various tools and strategies to help our emerging bilingual students, ESL students, and students with Dyslexia. There are some great tips Nicole touches upon to help these student populations grow in our classrooms.. This conversation was recorded at the TCCA conference in Aldine, Texas. There’s a student eSports competition going on in the background so keep your ears open for cheers in addition to our conversation. Nicole brings a wealth of information to the listeners so I’m surprised that this is her first time on a podcast. Hopefully, this won’t be her last. Buen provecho!
