I am excited to be teaching fourth grade EL at SIS. I have taught English Language Learners in Grand Prairie, TX and Memphis, TN. I am completing the year Ms. Marks started. Our focus will be improving our writing, reading, speaking and listening skills. All SIS EL students have been using Words Their Way this year. Please go to www.pearsonrealize.com to continue your lessons. Email or call me thru School Status if you have forgotten your password. SIS websites will be available this summer.
