English as a second language (ESL)
WELCOME FAMILIES! WE ARE SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU HERE AT STONY CREEK!
Meet Mrs. O'Reilly
Welcome families! My name is Anne O'Reilly and I am the ESL teacher here at Stony Creek Elementary. This is my 6th year at Stony Creek, my 9th year as an ESL teacher, and my 18th year teaching in JeffCo. I love working with multilingual students and their families!
There are more than 10 different languages spoken among families at Stony Creek!
Including: Spanish, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Korean, Serbian, Russian, Chinese (both Mandarin and Yue), Afrikaans, Greek, and Indonesian!
ESL SUPPORT AT STONY CREEK
What does it look like if your child is enrolled in the ESL program? Here are three ways I support multilingual students and their families:
work with kids
I work with all ESL students, either in their classroom or in small groups in my room. Our work together is focused on the language needed to do their best in their classroom.
work with teachers
I meet with teachers to help plan lessons, provide recommendations or resources, and problem-solve to best support English language learners.
work with families
Please reach out at any time! I can arrange for an interpreter for any language. I will gladly talk with your about your child's language progress and share their goals and successes.
DID YOU KNOW?
It takes most people 5-7 years to become completely proficient in a second language.
