Welcome to ESL Class!
My name is Elda Douglas
de Benedetti, I have been teaching in this county for fourteen years and I will
be the ESL teacher. I am from Venezuela and I am very excited to
work with your child and involve her/him into learning another language and
experiencing a variety of aspect related to English culture.
I would like you to
support me in encouraging your son/daughter to learn a second language, since
our students are expected to be multilingual and knowledgeable citizens in
accordance to skills listed in the North Carolina attributes of a future ready
graduate. This is very important to mention, as in my class, your child can
build up knowledge to reach more and better opportunities nowadays and in the
future while working together in peaceful environment; therefore, I expect your
child to take advantage of this opportunity to learn. This year I will be and Inclusion setting which involves placing ESL students in a regular education classroom for content area instruction, while they may also receive push-in or pull-out support services.
What Does Inclusion for ESL Students Look Like?
In an inclusion setting, ESL students remain in regular education classes. If you are the content area teacher, your ESL students may receive push-in services from the ESL teacher, who will work with you in the classroom in a co-teaching model to provide support for ELLs. In other scenarios, ESL students may receive targeted English instruction in a classroom with their ESL teacher through a pull-out model, while you are primarily responsible for their inclusion in your content area classroom. With either model, the ESL teacher often collaborates with the content area teacher to provide the most beneficial educational experiences for ELLs.
If you wish to contact me at EWMS, you can reach me at 919-751-7110 extension 2473 from 11:45 to 3:45 (from Mondays to Fridays) to set up an appointment, or you can leave me a message in my extension if you prefer. You can also write me an email to [email protected]
I look forward to meeting
you and working together this semester to help your child be successful in his/her classes.
