"When I started trying all activities you shared with us with my students, I noticed they were more engaged and all of us enjoy our learning time together."

"Annabelle was as dynamic over the computer as she is in person; I learned so much from the experience. As we continue to define what professional development looks like in this online time, I cannot encourage people enough to take advantage of whatever Annabelle is offering. She puts so much thought into how to make the material accessible and that you walk away able to go into your classroom with new tools you can use right away. "

Annabelle Williamson was christened "La Maestra Loca" by her students long ago, but what she is really crazy about is building a positive, inclusive, success-oriented language community that promotes equity and anti-racist education. Annabelle's love of students, people, languages, and of life is contagious, while her deep understanding of the nuts and bolts of teaching for communicative competence will leave you eager and inspired to return to your classrooms and start implementing all of her strategies for equitable engagement! She's currently in her 9th year as an educator, teaching Middle School Spanish in New Orleans at Bricolage Academy. Annabelle has her Masters in Education with an emphasis in linguistically and culturally diverse education.
