Welcome and News

Glenwood Elementary has a range of services for learners of English as a Second Language (ESL). For beginning students, separate or 'pull-out' classes are offered which focus on the four language domains; listening, speaking, reading, and writing. For more advanced students, we offer co-teaching services in which the ESL teachers work with students in their classrooms. 

At Glenwood we have four ESL teachers;  Kristen Cho, Michelle Delin, Laura Holmes and janet Walters. We are resource teachers who help your child with his/her English and can also help you.  If you need assistance filling out papers, communicating to your child's classroom teacher or the rest of the staff at Glenwood, we would be happy to help you.

If we recommend that your child take an ESL class, we will send home a paper that lets you know how often we plan on helping your child.  We will monitor your child's progress in English during the year to ensure they are successful in school.  

Welcome - we are glad you are Glenwood Gators!

While looking for something else, I found this great resource.  It is Kaplan's Learn English Blog.  It is an excellent resource for parents who are learning English!
