Hello, I’m Jean Rizzo the ELL teacher at Mill Run Elementary School. I was born and raised in the Canal Zone Republic of Panama. I earned my Bachelors of Arts degree in Speech Communications from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va and a Masters Degree in Education (ESL) from Marymount University, Arlington, Va. My husband and I have two daughters ages 21 and 19 and a Jack Russell puppy named Omaha (my husband is a Broncos fan). I live in Broadlands and have enjoyed working at Mill Run for the past thirteen years.
I use many techniques and strategies to help our English Language Learners acquire and master the English Language. I will be working with all students as a resource to our fabulous teachers at Mill Run. I look forward to a great 2016-2017 school year.
If your child needs to be screened for ELL please call the school or e-mail me for an appointment.
