Welcome to News from Maestro Sersea #145: April 14th, 2024

Greetings, and welcome to our newsletter. I’m Ioan Elvis Sersea, M.A., M.A.T., aka Maestro Sersea. English was my third language when I moved to the United States of America from Romania over 40 years ago. I have been passionately teaching English learners in California since 1989, both at K-12 public schools and community colleges. Whether you’re a student or a teacher of English, I hope you will find the following learning activities and educational resources helpful. You can contact me and learn more about me by visiting my website and my LinkedIn account or by emailing me at maestrosersea @ gmail. com .
