    We are excited to welcome Ms. Jen McNally, a part-time addition to our ELL team this year.  In the morning Ms. McNally works with Kindergarten and second grade ELL students at Ashburn Elementary.  In the afternoon she works with our ELL kindergarteners here at Cedar Lane. Ms. Betsey Sheasley teaches our first and second grade ELL students, Ms. Julie DeVito teaches our 4th and 5th grade ELL students, and Ms. Nowinski works with our third and fifth grade ELL students.
    The English Language Learner Program focuses on four components of language: listening, speaking, reading and writing in English. Limited English proficient students are a diverse group of children who enter our program with a wide range of home language and English skills. Student growth in the  ELL program depends upon a number of factors; speaking opportunities with peers, individual instruction specifically in the areas of reading and writing, commitment on the part of the learner to 'follow through' with homework assignments and most of all, teacher responsibility to create fun, engaging learning experiences!  Our ELL team is thoroughly committed to ensuring that all students are an integral part of their classroom community.
