Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Jenny Kim, and I am the ESL (ELL) Teacher at Midland School #1. This will be my second year at Midland, and I am genuinely excited to be here with the students! I have a Bachelor of Arts in English Education from Montclair State University, and I hold dual teaching certificates in English Language Arts and English as a Second Language, P-12. In addition to the beautiful English language, I also speak Korean and conversational Japanese. I have also been trying to learn Spanish after traveling to Spain and falling in love with the language and culture a few years back.
I absolutely love engaging myself in the studies of English and interacting with students from diverse cultural backgrounds. I am privileged to be able to embrace this joy with my students on a daily basis. English Language Learners (ELLs) will be provided with services and opportunities to enhance their skills across all four domains of language acquisition-- listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
I am all about supporting my ELLs in maximizing their potential to fully absorb their class learning and engagement and helping them feel at ease when communicating with others. I want them to experience the joy of learning through it all. I look forward to sharing great times with each and every one of them this year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
