giving kids the gift of academic language
Tina Beene - Educational Consultant
Tina Beene began her career as an alternatively certified bilingual fifth grade teacher who planned to teach for a few years while she figured out what she really wanted to be when she grew up. As it turned out, the classroom was exactly where she belonged and she has devoted her career to helping students realize their potential while advocating for linguistic supports and systems that facilitate that growth.
Tina has lived and worked in North Texas throughout her career as a classroom teacher, instructional specialist, and district program coordinator. She has overseen an elementary bilingual program that serves almost 10,000 students and now supports secondary ELL students and teachers.
