Our ELL teachers are:Shannon CornellSujen NawrotKaty CurlingLily LindquistShannon CornellHello and welcome to another great year at Steuart W. Weller Elementary School. My name is Shannon Cornell and I have been one of the ELL teachers since the school opened in 2008. I am very excited to be a part of the Weller family for another great year.A little about me: I grew up in a rural town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Because of my childhood, I have a passion for the outdoors. I love to bike, hike, camp, and just relax by a lake. I also love to take photos. I can't leave home without my camera. I am married and have 2 sons. They both attended Steuart Weller which has made this school like a home for me.After graduating high school, I attended Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education with a specialization in mathematics. In addition, I earned my endorsement in English as a Second Language through George Mason University. Recently, I enrolled in American College of Education and attained a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I am sure it will be a great one!Sujen NawrotI joined Steuart Weller Elementary School in 2009 after spending 5 years in Fairfax Public Schools. I graduated from Taipei Teacher’s College in Taiwan with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Later I earned a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.I love the diversity of our students. They are motivated to learn the English language. At the same time, they have so much to share about their culture and customs.In my leisure time, I like to cook, travel, and spend time with my two daughters.Katy CurlingMrs. Curling is excited to be back at Steuart Weller in the EL Department for the 2019-2020 school year! Mrs. Curling earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish and her Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Mrs. Curling began her teaching career back in 2000 but took a few years off to be at home with her young children. Mrs. Curling is thrilled to have been back in the classroom as a resource to students who are learning English as an additional language for the past 6 years. Mrs. Curling will work with her students to do their very best. She is looking forward to a wonderful and successful school year!Lily LindquistI look forward to being a Weller Wild Cat in the 2019-2020 school year.
