My name is Sarah Boyd and I am one of the elementary ELL teachers here at AIMS.
My goal is to build on their strengths and develop their English language skills in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
I was born in South Korea, but have lived in the Twin Cities since childhood. My hobbies include reading, travel, cooking, and drawing.
♥ As an ELL student your child spends most of their day in the general education classroom. In addition, they will work with me at a certain time of the day or week to support their language needs.
♥ Instructional support is provided primarily during reader’s workshop or writer’s workshop. ELL teachers provide targeted language instruction and learning strategies to students to make grade level content more accessible.
♥ Even though your child’s English development is important, their home language and culture is just as important. Please keep using your home language with your child.
