English as a New Language

ENL (English as a New Language) uses strategies for English language development with native language support so that students develop language and content knowledge in English.​ Due to the state standards the role of the ENL teacher is expanding but the main goal is to facilitate the instruction to ENLs, by working closely with classroom teachers to adapt the curriculum based on the language needs of the ENL students.

As your child's ENL teacher, I would like to extend a warm welcome to both new and returning students and their families. On this page, you will find some information about your child's ENL services. I look forward every day to working with your children! I hope to see all of you and speak with you about your child's progress at PS 19 during the upcoming Parent Teacher Conferences. If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me.
