Learning The Language, the crucially important Education Week blog on English Language Learners begun by Mary Ann Zehr several years ago, will continue — for now — and be written by Alexandra Rice. It’s still unclear what will be happening in the long-run. Mary Ann left this past week to become a high school ESL teacher.

Alexandra recently received her Master’s from Northwestern, worked for Latino Policy Forum; and is “passionate about languages, teaching and education.” She’s already written a couple of useful posts, so Learning The Language continues to be a “must-read” blog for educators of English Language Learners.

And, by the way, though Mary Ann won’t be writing her blog any longer, she says she’ll remain active on Twitter. You can follow her here.
