Teaching Italian and Japanese part time at Davidson High School, the teacher also works as a consultant in surrounding schools delivering professional learning. In her class she addresses an issue frequently faced by teachers of languages other than English: student mobility.

She needs to work out differentiated strategies to meet a new set of specific learning needs, as well as those already existing in her class.
