Genie,
Thanks for your response. :D I also believe there is going to be a need for lots of hand gestures and repeating going on if I am to teach children the English Language. Especially if they don't know it or if I can't speak their language. Again, thanks for your response.

Thanks for your response. I do hope I am lucky enough to work in a district where the teachers help each other out for the sake of the children. Thanks for easing some of my worries.

Blanca, I think you are going to have to use spanish only when you start to teach these kids due to the fact they will be NES. You need to realize you will not be able to reach all your goals, so make the goals you do make for your kids attainable. Don't expect to get everything in that you would in...

I had the opposite problem when I was in school. My parents are both from Mexico, and when I was born they made sure I was born here in the U.S. They wanted me to have opportunities they didn't have.
