Thank you for visiting my webpage. I have been an English Language Arts teacher in the Rochester City School district for ten years. However, this is my first year teaching at RIA and it has been an honor to facilitate the learning of such wonderful students. I co-teach with four ESOL teachers, which means that each class has two teachers, thus providing students with abundant support. It is our responsibility to prepare the students to be college and career ready,while starting at the level of each individual student's English language proficiency. My job as an ELA teacher is to work with the ESOL teachers to help students grow in their knowledge of the English Language. We make connections between the student's home language and the English language as we celebrate the diversity in our classroom as well as the diversity in literature.
In most of the classes that I co-teach, the majority of the student's work, as well as due dates, are located on google classroom. On my webpage, I have provided a link under Useful Links to access google classroom. You will need your student's ID number and password to access his/her work. I think you will be very proud of the progress your child has made this year.
