Welcome ELL Families!
I am very excited to be joining Hillcrest Elementary School! I wanted to share a little bit about myself. I have been teaching for 8 years. I am thrilled to start a new adventure teaching ELL resource. In the past I have taught preschool, special education, 1st grade, and 2nd grade. I live in Wildwood with my family. I have a 5 year old daughter, a dog, 2 cats. They all keep me very busy.
ACCESS testing started last week. I am so proud of the Hillcrest students for staying focused so we can complete the testing ahead of schedule.
We are currently using Language for Learning
curriculum. It is a wonderful program that teaches English Language Learners skills that can be transferred in the general education classroom. The focus for the program is oral expression. Students practice basic vocabulary and sentence formation.
