We live in a monolingual society, and, unfortunately, the belief that English is the superior language is what most of our federal and state laws were founded on and still support. Today’s guest combines her love of learning about language and cultures with a passion for the law, and she is on a mission to make education more equitable for our ELL students.

Brooke Boutwell has firsthand experience as a multilingual learner. She knows what it’s like to live in a foreign country as a student without any academic support or accommodations and how much that can impact a student’s confidence and self-esteem. Brooke is dedicated to helping teachers support their ELL students in the classroom so they can be successful and receive the education they deserve.

In this episode, Brooke shares how her own experiences as a multilingual learner shaped her career as an educator. She also shares helpful tips and strategies any teacher can use to create a supportive learning environment for their ELL students. When we teach with our ELLs in mind, all of our students succeed.
