    Hi Sue,

    I need to interview a ESL teacher and a Bilingual Education teacher for my Masters of Education in Reading. Are you an ESL or Bilingual teacher? If so, I could somehow get the questions to you (possibly copy and paste the questions here) and you could answer them to the best of your knowledge. Your help or anyone else who is reading this would be greatly appreciated. I need to complete my paper and submit by this Wed. evening. I teach reading at a private Catholic School. In my neighborhood we have 57 different spoken languages. ESL and Bilingual Education is extremely relevant to me. We have a pretty heavy population of Phillipino Americans at my school.

    Mike
