Welcome to ENL!

English as a New Language (ENL) is an exciting and inviting class where non-native speakers of English can come to practice listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. We work closely with the classroom teacher so that students receive paralleled instruction based on what they are doing in the regular classroom.

By learning ESL strategies, improving vocabulary acquisition, and reading comprehension, it is my hope that ESL students achieve success and learn English quickly. Please use this website to help your child at home so that we all can help them be their best. Don't hesitate to contact us with a note or a telephone call to check in or ask a question. Mrs. Villalobos currently teaches 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade ENL students. Mrs. Vieco currently teaches Kindergarten and 1st grade ENL students.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Villalobos

Mrs. Vieco
