ELL Department

Licensed ELL teachers:

Lynita Parks and Kathryn Veryser

We provide language development services to K-5 Pratt students who are learning English. Our service delivery methods include co-teaching in the classroom, small group targeted instruction, differentiated and sheltered lessons, and oral language and writing groups- all based on the language level of students. Our goal is for students to master grade level academic language demands and eventually exit the ESL program and services. We also promote native language literacy, helping all students become global citizens!
