As I approach my final year of education through Thomas Edison State University, I am preparing to enter a field that helps the community. I want to teach the Spanish speaking community English as a second language (ESL). With the growing Spanish speaking population, there are many children, young adults and adults who struggle learning the English language. “There were 55.3 million Hispanics in the United States in 2014, comprising 17.3% of the total U.S. population. In 1980, with a population of 14.8 million, Hispanics made up just 6.5% of the total U.S. population (Stepler, Brown 2016).” It is projected that the numbers will continue to rise.
The modernization of technology is causing a huge impact in how I am achieving these career goals.
