Welcome to the wonderful world of ESL (English as a Second Language)!  Our ESL Program supports children both socially and academically.  We work closely with the classroom teachers to best support our English language learners.  Students strengthen their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills everyday through various activities to help promote their second language acquisition.  I love teaching ESL and have so enjoyed learning about my students and their diverse cultures.  Please email me if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for supporting out students!  :)

ESL letter and resources :)

Dear Students and Parents,


During this unusual time, please know that I miss you all very much, and I am committed to helping you in any way I can with your English Language development.


This message is my way of reaching out to you with resources and support to help you maintain the English language skills you’ve already learned. During this time, we will not be making any assignments or requiring any student work. However, we want to provide optional learning activities to keep you engaged in the learning process as much as possible.


The district has created a webpage offering a variety of resources for our English Learners. These resources were carefully chosen by the teachers in our ESL department and each one offers support and activities specifically designed with you in mind. I hope you will take the time to explore these resources and use them to help maintain and build on what you have learned thus far.




In addition, once a week, I will be reaching out through email or SeeSaw with a personal message or activity. Please join me and let’s stay in touch! If you have any concerns, questions, or thoughts, please get in touch with me and I will respond as quickly as possible.


Missing you more each day and hoping you and your families are staying well,


Ms. Straube
