What's Happening in the World of ESOL?
The ESOL Department welcomes Ms. Bonnie Bendelius!
Congratulations Mrs. Wendy Aldridge, an ESOL teacher at Ethel W. Kight Elementary, for being named a 2020 Exemplary ESOL Teacher by the Georgia Department of Education!
Mrs. Wendy Aldridge (Ethel W. Kight Elementary)
Mrs. Aldridge's ESOL students at EKES had a great month learning about Hispanic Heritage Month. Each grade level read passages about Hispanic Heritage month, and why it is celebrated. They also learned about famous Hispanic Americans. 4th and 5th grade ESOL students were featured on the morning broadcast each morning where they shared facts about famous Hispanic Americans. They ended the study with a cultural celebration where they snacked on some authentic Hispanic foods!
Mrs. Silk Lee (Franklin Forest Elementary)
Mrs. Lee uses Zoom and Google Meet to keep her students actively engaged during ESOL Summer Academy 2020 Virtual Learning.
Callaway and Clearview Elementary
Mrs. Walker's 1st and 4th grade students share their weather pictures and a vocabulary lesson during quarantine. Mrs. Walker also shares one of her weekly zoom meetings with her students.
Gardner Middle School
Mrs. Bartlett’s class celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. They learned the history behind Hojalata. Hojalata is the tin art made in Mexico that creates both practical and ornate objects. Mexican artisans and craftsmen draw on their imagination to mold inexpensive, readily available tin into elegant, delicate works of art. Hojalata has a wonderful mix of color and texture. Typically, Hojalata is made by stamping and punching tin. Mrs. Bartlett’s class used aluminum foil and sharpies to create their masterpieces.

Monitoring Forms 2020- 2021
Per State and Federal guidelines, we are required to monitor the English language development and academic progress of ESOL students who have been exited from the ESOL Program (for two years).
Additionally, TCSS ESOL will use these monitoring forms to document the progress of students who are receiving ESOL support services on a consultative basis, students whose parents have refused services and ESOL students whose progress needs to be closely monitored. Teachers are also encouraged to use these forms as a method of gathering classroom performance data on other ESOL students for RTI, parent-teacher conferences or IEP meetings.
