|Ms. Cynthia Grasso - ELL K-5/8th Spanish (Send e-mail)|
Hello! Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!
I feel extremely fortunate to be a member of the Frankfort SD157C community and consider it a privilege to work with our multilingual students and families.
In my role as English Language Learning (ELL) teacher at Grand Prairie and Chelsea schools, I will be working with ELL students from Kindergarten through 5th grade. We will be focusing on language acquisition in the areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing, in collaboration with classroom teachers & specialists throughout the district.
As an 8th Grade Spanish teacher, I´m excited for the opportunity to work with students striving to complete Spanish 1.
I have high expectations for all students and value the home-to-school connections we establish. I welcome questions and encourage you to feel free to contact me with any contributions you may have.
I am confident that, working together, we will provide your children with a nurturing & successful educational experience.
