Welcome to ESL
ESL (English as a Second Language)
The Mission of ESL is to enhance English skills for English Language Learners (ELLs). We practice the major language acquisition skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing, and Media. Mrs. Sacco sees students in their classrooms and in her classroom. She consults with the teachers of ELLs at Midland School and informs parents of their progress. She screens their progress and tests them regularly until they become proficient enough in English to exit ESL. Then, she misses them but she knows they leave her with a better understanding of English and an enhanced ability to communicate with the entire Midland School community.
Mrs. Sacco monitors the progress of all her students through observations and conferences with teachers and parents. ESL class does not assign specific homework, but rather monitors performance of students in their classes and in consultation with teachers and parents.
