Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Ian Sands

I am the ESOL Teacher for 3rd grade. I am from New York originally and this will be my second full school year at Jennie Dean. I have my undergraduate degree from Tufts University in Boston, and I am almost finished with a Master's in Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse and Exceptional Learners (TCLDEL) from George Mason University, where I received my certification to teach ESOL education.

I love teaching at Jennie Dean, and I am really excited to help my students become accomplished readers and writers this year. I also look forward to working with many of my students on their English and hope that they can help me work on my Spanish at the same time!

If you see me in the hallway, say hi!
