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 my Masters Degree in Education (ESL) from Marymount University, Arlington, Va. My husband and I have two daughters ages 19 and 17 and a Jack Russell who is 11 years old. I live in Broadlands and have enjoyed working at Mill Run for the past eleven 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 2014-2015 school year.
If your child needs to be screened for ELL please call the school or e-mail me for an appointment.
