Welcome to Mr. Sommers's Class

My name is Mr. Sommers and I am the 3rd grade ESL teacher.  I pull students out to work on reading, writing, vocabulary, and language acquisition.  

2015-2016 3rd grade class on Walk-a-thon Day.
My name is Troy Sommers and I am originally from Hartville, Ohio.  I moved to Columbus 11 years ago to marry my wife Jen and attend The Ohio State University.  
     I graduated from OSU with a Bachelors in English with an education focus.  I received my Masters in TESOL from Ohio Dominican University in 2009. I taught ESL for 5 years at Licking Heights High School.  This is my 2nd year at Stiles Elementary.   I became an ESL teacher because of my experiences as a language learner living in Russia and Bangladesh. 
    I have an adorable 3 year old who attend the pre-school at Stiles.  I am also a foster father to a one year old girl and an infant.
