4th Grade EL Teacher


My name is Ellen Buckner and I have been teaching at Lyndale since 2014. Prior to joining the Lyndale community I taught high school English/ESL in Houston, Texas and English as a Foreign Language in a rural South African village as a Peace Corps volunteer. I hold a Masters degree in Second Languages and Cultures Education from the University of Minnesota, and Bachelors degrees in English Linguistics and Anthropology from the University of Houston.

I'm excited to be working with all of the fourth grade students this year to enrich their English language as I coteach Science and Social Studies. Please encourage your students to read at home every night to help with their language growth!
