Hi, my name is Folake Ladipo and I am the 7th grade ESL teacher. This is my third year at Christa McAuliffe Middle School and I am excited to be here. I obtained my first degree in English and Literary Studies from The University of Ife, Nigeria, West Africa. 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. I believe my many years of working with children of diverse cultural backgrounds is a great asset in working with our ESL students here at CHrista McAuliffe. In my spare time I love to read biographies, listen to inspirational music and watch videos of real life events. I have a daughter who is married with two beautiful daughters.
