Sheila Hougen, ESL Teacher, K-1

   I am an ESL teacher with the Kindergarten and first grade students.  This year is my 4th year at Emerson,but have many years of teaching experience.   Before coming to Emerson I taught third grade in the regular classroom.  I have traveled in Central and South America.  I have lived in Brazil and in Nicaragua.  Being a teacher in Emerson's bilingual program is a great experience.  Knowing more than one language is a such an asset for our students.  I am happy to be a part of that language learning process.
