Camille Marie Garcia is an ESL teacher who has worked for Boston Public Schools for the past 12 years. Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico, Camille’s bilingualism and biculturalism has helped her broker language for and connect with the growing Hispanic population of East Boston. Wanting to expand her knowledge of and integrate English language learning into her work in elementary school teaching, Camille completed advanced studies at Lesley University’s Graduate School of Education, earning an MEd in Elementary and ESL; she was also the recipient of the William Dandridge Book Award for 2017. Her work in the program infused her passion for writing and the arts with teaching language through the context of content learning. Camille hopes to extend her passion for teaching toward educating new teachers at the university level. She also plans on expanding her pedagogy at the doctoral level to further investigate the cognitive underpinnings of a whole-child approach to education that may reform the way teaching is prescribed.
