    Dear Families,
    Welcome to the English as a Second Language (ESL) webpage.  This website has been created so I can keep you informed and keep in touch with different things we are doing in ESL.  I'm so excited that you decided to stop in and check out my site.
    Please help your child to develop good work and study habits by checking his or her backpack and folder each day for homework and providing a place to complete it.  If the homework is too difficult for your child to do, please write a note to the teacher, but it is important that your child does try to do it first.
    ESL is a very exciting place where students learning English get a chance to practice listening, speaking, reading and writing in English.  My aim is to help students succeed in their classroom by paralleling their classroom curriculum.  I use ESL strategies such as adding pictures to content vocabulary, pantomime, and use of song to further scaffold the student's learning.  I hope that the addition of this website will help strengthen your home/school connection.
    Please visit my website to find out what's happening in ESL.  If you have any questions, or concerns, please be sure to contact me.  You can email me derushiad@lisbon.k12.ny.us. A note or a telephone call is also always welcome.  I'll get back to you as quickly as I can.
    Mr. DeRushia
