ELL Teachers
Bilingual Assistants
  • Mr. Alale
Somali Folktale Project

The English Learner (EL) teachers at Lyndale Elementary assist students whose home language is different from English. EL students are supported in their language development through rigorous literacy, science, social studies and mathematics instruction. We focus on oral language practice, reading, writing and vocabulary development while supporting students with the content from their grade level curriculum. Students receive EL instruction both within their mainstream classrooms and outside the classroom where they are given small group or individual instruction based on student needs.

Bilingual Assistants provide additional support to English Learners by using the students’ first language to facilitate learning in English and to provide interpreting and translating services for our Somali and Spanish speaking families.

Our tasks are to:

  • Provide students with quality English language services to help them acquire and build language skills.
  • Help students achieve success both in their ability to use the English language and in their academic coursework.
  • Connect EL students and families with the entire school community.
