Welcome to ESL at Walnut Hill Elementary! Our English as a Second Language program focuses on speaking, listening, reading, writing, and building vocabulary and background knowledge.
This is my 4th year at Walnut Hill. I love our students and staff! We have a growing and diverse ESL population, serving students whose home languages include Spanish, Karen, Karenni, Chin, Burmese, Dinka, Nuer, Acholi, Arabic, Somali, and Vietnamese.
My ESL groups enjoy reading, writing, listening, and speaking about meaningful themes. Topics so far this year have included being bilingual, the Statue of Liberty, world geography, animals, and the rock cycle.
