Welcome to Mrs. Brander's ESL webpage!
Lynette Brander - Point Person and Instructional Coach for TWBI ESL Coordinator/Coach and Families in Transition Liaison for HPS
¡Saludos! Welcome to Holland Public Schools and Holland Language Academy! My name is Lynette Brander, and I am the point person and instructional coach for the TWBI program here. I assist with supporting teachers, connecting them with add.a.lingua as needed, and ensuring program fidelity.
I was born in Puerto Rico and moved to the United States when I was 5 years old. I had to relearn Spanish in high school and college, so I am passionate about young students having the ability to acquire bilingualism and continue developing it as they grow. I studied in Honduras for a semester while at Calvin College and then taught high school English in the Dominican Republic for 5 years after graduating. I love working in Holland Public Schools where I can continue using and growing my Spanish skills even as I help students acquire Spanish and English. Please let me know if you have any questions about our program!
