Hi everyone! My name is Carmen Jacobsen and I am very excited to have been invited to be part of a group of people who are interested in sharing their creative thoughts on education through the REEP blog!
I feel like I started my teaching career backwards. I started out working with professional adult doctors and bankers who wanted to learn English As A Second Language (ESL) paying my way through Medical School. After several twists and turns in my life, I stayed with teaching, so here I am years later.
I am currently a Pre K teacher, but I have also taught creative writing to all elementary basic level students through the after school and summer programs with Writers in the Schools-WITS and ¬†Hua Xia Chinese School on the weekends.
