We have three ESOL teachers: Mrs. Earle, Mrs. Jimenez-Ros, and Mrs. Ress. We also have two bilingual assistants, Mrs. Nava and Mrs. Pagan.
We support our Kindergarten through 5th grade ESOL students and teachers throughout the day in every subject area with small group instruction. Our team provides translations for families, faculty, PTA, and Title I. We assist with conferences, parents registering for our school and programs and provide information and resources within the school and community.
We survey our parents at the beginning of the year to learn more about the issues and concerns they may have regarding their children. We use that information to hold bimonthly "ESOL Coffee Talks."
