Hello, I am looking forward to working with you this year! My name is Kim Fisher and I am the ESL Liaison for both Griffin MS and Lakeview MS!   My goal is to help you as you work with your ELL students to help them reach their best success.  


The purpose of this site is to give you a "one stop shop" for information and resources related to ESL, from assessment and accommodation information to resources and strategies you can use in your classroom.  I am also available to meet with you if you have questions or concerns about assisting your ESL students. 


At the bottom and to the left of this home page, you'll see pages dedicated to the English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), ESL student classification, information regarding TELPAS and STAAR assessments, what's involved with learning and new language while a student is learning academic content, and much more.  Throughout the website, there are links and attachments you may find helpful as you work with your LEP students. 


Thank you for visiting the site and please don't hesitate to contact me with questions and/or concerns.   


* Many thanks to ESL Liaison Julie Waid at Durham Middle School for allowing me to model this website on hers.  Thank you Julie!!
