While student teaching at a high school with a high population of ELL students, Anne used her background in language learning and teaching to help her students better access the curriculum, as well as create a strong community in the classroom. This experience brought back memories of Anne's time teaching in France due to the effort she put into the visuals and use of clear and concise language. She makes an effort to meet each student where he or she is, whether an ELL student or not. She continues to create art lessons that are accessible and equitable for all.
