Welcome to an exciting new school  year! I am looking forward to a wonderful year filled with lots of learning and success. This is my 14th year of teaching. Learning is a journey filled with lots of surprises and discoveries along the way.  My philosophy in education is to instill a love of life-long learning in my students. I am married with two children, a fifteen-year-old daughter and a seven-year-old son. My favorite hobby is reading! Reading is like a journey where you paint the pictures as you read the words and learn new things along the way.  I look forward to working with everyone!

Access Testing

Good afternoon! We are moving right along with Access testing. We are almost finished with the reading portion. Please remember that it is very important to engage each and every question as if it were the only one on the test so that the score can reflect knowledge! We will begin the speaking portion next week. Make sure that you do your best, speak clearly in the microphone, and do not worry about others around you. 

Access Testing has begun!

Access testing has officially begun! Please make sure to get plenty of sleep, eat a good breakfast, and arrive on time. This is the test that measures the English proficiency in listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Do your best!

Duolingo Language Learning Program

All of our newcomers and beginning English language learners are working on Duolingo, a language learning program online. It can be accessed anywhere from any device, even a phone! It is important to practice as much as possible to establish growth in language skills. 

Access Testing Window is open!

Good afternoon! The Access Testing window is now open! We will begin soon. This test assesses the English language learner in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. It is important to get enough rest and do your best!

After School Program

We have an after school program available every day from 4-5:15 for students who need extra help. Transportation and a snack are provided. I have forms if you would like for your student to attend. I am working at the program so I hope to see you there!

Helpful website to work on at home for students

Greetings! As we come closer to the end of course exam testing time, I want to encourage everyone to please take advantage of the USA test prep activities available online. These are very helpful in preparing students for their EOC's. They also count for a grade in many cases. I always encourage my students to take advantage of the opportunity to learn so that they don't get behind. Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Here is a photo of the book that we just started today. The students are really enjoying it! It is a very important lesson about diversity and being comfortable in the skin you're in. 

Access Testing almost complete!

Greetings! Access testing is almost complete! As we are wrapping up  the testing and moving forward with ACT, EOC, and final exams to wrap up the year, please make sure that we stay on task and all students bring their laptops, fully charged and in the cases, to school every day. We will continue to use One Note in the ESOL class. Also, I am able to help students with USA Test-Prep exercises as needed. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Use your One Note Page!

During Access testing, ESOL students will be in the library. Mrs. Bradley will be testing the duration of the day and testing window, so students will need their devices and access to one note to complete assignments. Please take care of your devices and bring them with you so that you may complete your ESOL work. If you have any questions or concerns, email Mrs. Bradley. Thank you!

Access Testing Coming up in February!

The Access test is coming up in February. Level one students need to be logging on to Duolingo daily. Higher level students need to focus on their reading and writing skills so that they can score high and not have to take the test again next year.
