Hello! 
My name is Barbara Sansanelli.
Welcome to ESL (English As A Second Language)
 
I teach ESL classes on the beginner, intermediate and advanced level at Robert Fulton located in room B15. 
 
ESL students will work this year on perfecting phonetic skills by learning and using proper phonic rules.
 
An important goal in ESL is to continue to improve listening, speaking, reading comprehension, and written skills in present, past, and future tenses. This is also an important part of becoming a great ESL student.  I will continue to assist all ESL students in these areas in preparation for the upcoming WIDA NJ state wide / USA spring testing with our ELLs (English Language Learners) students in order to maximize student growth.
 
Help is also given to the ESL students during tier 2 ESL classroom support to reinforce their Math and ELA  (English Language Arts) lessons in the mainstream classes.  I work with the ESL students to maximize student growth.
 
I have worked in the North Bergen School District for 29 years teaching ESL on the beginner and intermediate levels.  This year I am also teaching ESL on the advanced level for ESL students.  My past experiences vary from teaching preschool and elementary classes for grades 2 and 4 in NJ to teaching overseas on the elementary level in private schools in Brazil.  I received an elementary certification / music concentration after attending Jersey City University.  Later I received an ESL certification on the graduate level.  
 
ESL marking period grades are averaged based on class participation, classwork, homework, and tests and quizzes.
 
Extra Help is given on Tuesday morning 8:30-9:00 or Wednesday afternoon from 3:00-3:30.
 
It is a pleasure working with your children.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 201-295-2900.  My email is bsansanelli@northbergen.k12.nj.us
Thank you.
Sincerely, 
Ms. Sansanelli
