John Kibler

John Kibler’s career spans more than 25 years in the field of ESL education from classroom teacher and program director to educational consultant and university instructor. Working with the widest variety of age groups, programmatic models and instructional programs, his primary mission has focused on preparing educators for the linguistically and culturally diverse students they will find themselves surrounded by in today’s diversifying classroom.  Another of his equally powerful passions is aiding English Language Learners [Emerging Bilingual Students] in their educational journeys to gain academic achievement, multilingual pride and blended identities that allow past and present to exist together as the best of what being an American means.
