Coming in the New Year… a series of articles with free downloadable teaching tools and resources! They will be written and produced by Jessica Tweedie. Jessica Tweedie is a primary trained teacher with 17 years experience as an EAL specialist teacher. Having worked in over 22 schools she has experienced both being employed as a dedicated EAL teacher in one school and peripatetically across authorities as part of an EAL team. Her career has spanned working both nationally in the English mainstream and internationally in Southern and East Africa in International schools (both IBO and British). She has experience of working as a manager and setting up systems that work for the EAL learner and has always ensured that she continues to be a practicing EAL teacher, exploring new ideas and methods to enable students to access the curriculum – in both pull out and push-in lessons and always working in partnership with mainstream colleagues. She has recently moved back from East Africa and is currently working as an EAL teacher and EAL Co-ordinator in Oxford, UK.
