San Diego educators working to make math friendlier for English learners
Marianna Moncreiff is a math teacher now. But when she started college in the United States, she was put in a remedial math course. "Even though I knew the math, I could not pass the test because I didn't know what the questions were," Moncreiff said. Born in Slovakia, now she's teaching students from all over the world at Hoover High School in City Heights. About 30 percent of the student body there is learning to speak English. Another 50 percent, like Moncrieff, speak it as a second language.
