ESL

  • The Leesville ESL program primarily serves students whose first language is something other than English.  Through direct instruction, co-teaching and collaboration with homeroom teachers, we help children become English proficient.  The instruction has a focus on teaching children to access academic language and vocabulary.  Along with instructing children, we act as a resource for parents and staff and often act as a liaison between home and school. We encourage community involvement with such activities as parent academy workshops held at the school once per quarter.

I am so excited to be part of the LES ESL community again! This is my 16th year of teaching with most of those years here at Leesville Elementary School. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, ESL and AIG. I am looking forward to continuing my ESL journey with our ESL students. I am a graduate of Meredith College with a degree in Psychology and a K-6 teaching certification. I am ESL certified and working on my AIG certification.

I have two awesome children; a son who is a junior at NC State (GO PACK!) and a daughter who is a freshman at UNC Charlotte. My family has been a part of the Leesville community since my son entered Kindergarten and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love to listen to music which works out nicely because I have a very musical family. My son plays guitar, my daughter sings and my husband plays the drums. I don't currently play any instruments which makes me the oddball out but I love to listen to them create music! I also love reading, doing crossfit, traveling, visiting Lake Gaston, and watching my daughter play softball!
