CLASS

English as a Second Language

The English as a second language (ESL) program provides academic and social English language instruction in speaking, listening, reading and writing to English learners (ELs) in grades K-12. ESL instruction integrates the topics, and vocabulary from the North Carolina Standard Course of Study in social studies and science, mathematics and language arts with the language functions of the North Carolina English Language Proficiency Standard Course of Study in order for students to achieve social and academic proficiency in the English language. The program supports all teachers' efforts to differentiate instruction in order to best meet the needs of these students. Some of the goals of the ESL program in Lee County include:

  • Closing achievement gaps for students identified as English learners (EL).

  • Providing appropriate, equitable services and opportunities to all English learners and their families.

  • Increasing family involvement for culturally and linguistically diverse students.

  • Providing high quality professional development on strategies and effective models of instruction for English learners

Inglés como Segunda Lengua

El Programa de Inglés como Segunda Lengua (ESL, por sus siglas en inglés) enseña el idioma en su uso social y académico a través de las habilidades del habla, escucha, lectura y escritura al estudiante que lo aprende (EL, por sus siglas en inglés) desde Jardín de Infantes y hasta 12º grado. La enseñanza integra los temas y el vocabulario de las áreas académicas de ciencia, estudios sociales, matemáticas y lengua del Programa de Estudios de Carolina del Norte, con las funciones lingüísticas del Programa de Estudios del Idioma Inglés de Carolina del Norte…con el objetivo de que el estudiante alcance el dominio del lenguaje social y académico. El programa promueve los esfuerzos del docente en su diferenciación de la enseñanza a fin de poder cubrir eficazmente las necesidades del estudiante. Entre los objetivos del Programa de ESL se destacan:

  • Cerrar la brecha en el rendimiento escolar del estudiante EL.

  • Brindar servicios y oportunidades apropiados y equitativos al estudiante EL y su familia.

  • Incrementar la participación de las familias de estudiantes cultural y lingüísticamente diversos.

  • Brindar capacitación profesional de alta calidad en el uso de estrategias y modelos eficaces en la enseñanza del estudiante EL.

About me

Hi, my name is Mrs. Selman and I am so happy to have you in my ESL class this year! This is my 18th year to teach! I have a B.S. in Human Learning and Development with a Specialization in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I also have a M. A. in Education with a Specialization in Reading and Writing (Literacy). I have a teaching certificate in Early Childhood and Elementary Education, Pre-K - 6th grade, ESL K-12 and Reading Specialist K-12. My family has only lived in North Carolina for a few years. I grew up in Texas and still go back often to visit my family. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and four children. I love animals and I like to read and write when I have free time. I look forward to teaching you English this year at W.B. Wicker!
