Hello! My name is Hannah Filipiak. I am the 8th grade MLL teacher. This means I teach students who speak more than one language. They are brilliant! I have been teaching for 6 years, including a year in South Africa. I have my masters in ESL teaching and am licensed to teach K-12 grade.
In my class, which is called English Language Development (ELD), we will be practing our English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. We will do this through vocabulary work, as well as support for your student's English (ELA) class.
Outside of school, I enjoy hiking with my dog, competing in powerlifting, reading and traveling when my partner and I get the chance.
Please reach out if you have any questions. My email is below, as well as the school phone number. Call that number, ask for me, leave a detailed message on my classroom phone and I will call back as soon as I can.
There is also an app called Talking Points that I send out frequent messages on, to update about student progress and communication. Email me if you don't receive instructions by the end of the second week of school.
I am very excited about working with your students and partnering with you this year!
