ESL is held during the school day for 30-45 minutes.  Depending on the student's English Language Development level, students will either come to my class for individualized instruction, small group instruction, or I may push into their mainstream classroom to provide support.  The goal of the ESL program to build listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English through learning the different content areas (English Language Arts, math, science, social studies, and social skills). We also learn about American culture and traditions. Students also have opportunities to share information about their own heritage and cultural background.
