Ms. Olufolake Ladipo

Hi, my name is Folake Ladipo and I am the  ESL teacher here at Baines Middle School. This is my 8th school year at Fort Bend ISD but my first at Baines and I am excited to be here, and even more excited to be your child's ESL teacher. My teaching career started in 1987 in my home country of Nigeria, West Africa, and my passion for teaching has continued to grow ever since. I obtained my first degree in English and Literary Studies from The University of Ife Nigeria. I also hold a Masters degree In Education from Houston Baptist University.  I have a strong drive for working with students whose first language is not English, and I am of the mindset that English learners have the capacity to learn just like the native speakers, if given the right supportive environment and linguistic accommodations. Due to this philosophy, I come daily prepared to equip English Learners  with the needed tools  for both  2nd language acquisition and academic success.  I believe my many years of working with children of diverse cultural backgrounds is a great asset in working with your child. I will also be a strong advocate for your child with their other teachers.

In my spare time I love to read biographies, listen to inspirational gospel music, watch videos and documentaries  of real life events.  I have a daughter who is married with two beautiful daughters and a very active son, so I enjoy doing grandma duties too!.
