ENL teacher named TESOL Member of the Month
Posted on 01/02/2020
Congratulations to Ben Franklin ENL teacher Brigitte Pittarelli who was named the New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, Member of the Month for January. Each month NYS TESOL selects an educator who demonstrates a commitment to the field.
Pittarelli is a 26-year veteran in the field of education, with most of her educational experience and background as a second language educator in the public-school system at the elementary level. Her philosophy is a belief that all learners regardless of level or ability can achieve academic success. This should include the incorporation of support, a positive mindset approach, and a supportive, welcoming environment.
She said she was inspired to go into ENL through her own experience as a second language learner. Pittarelli, a child of immigrants from Italy, watched her family struggle to learn the language.
“Being chosen as a New York State TESOL member of the month is an honor that I hold close to my heart,” she said.
Each of the winners is entered into a raffle for a complimentary registration to the NYS TESOL Annual Conference.
