SCPS ESOL Vision Statement
The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program works to ensure equal educational access for English Learners and their families. By recognizing that all stakeholders (students, parents, educators, community members, etc.) share the responsibility of ensuring that English learners develop linguistic, cognitive, and academic skills to become competitive citizens of our society, students whose first language is not English participate in academically challenging programs that respect and build upon the unique cultural and linguistic attributes they bring to the learning community.
Hello and welcome! My name is Mr. Westervelt and I am the ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teacher here at Stafford Elementary. I work in classrooms and in small pull-out groups with students who are English Learners (ELs). I work with my ELs in learning social and academic language/skills. The amount of time I spend in either classrooms or small groups depends on my students' needs and where they can be best helped. I look forward to working with my students during the 2017-18 school year.
