About Me

Hi everyone!

My name is Natalia and I am a 3rd-5th grade Bilingual/ELL Resource teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. This will be my second year teaching as a resource teacher. Before this, I started my teaching career as a 4th Grade Dual Language teacher. As I was getting my Bachelor’s in Bilingual Elementary Education, I worked as a bilingual assistant in the Jumpstart Pre-K program for 2 years. I speak three languages, Polish, English, and Spanish. I definitely consider myself a Spanish learner still!

I love working with the Bilingual/ESL population and have worked in high-needs districts for all my whole career. I believe that all students deserve to learn in a safe, engaging, and interactive environment where they can practice their language skills! I decided to start this blog when I couldn’t find any ELL Resource blogs. If you are an ELL resource teacher, I hope we can chat and share ideas on here!

As for my life, I love Jesus, travel, food, and spending time with my awesome husband!
