WELCOME to Mann Middle School's Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLDE) teacher website, also known as English as a Second Language (ESL.)
I service both Mann and Sabin Middle Schools and therefore may not always be in the building or able to take phone calls. The best and most effective way to reach me is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will check my email multiple times a day and will answer at my earliest opportunity.
I am a Colorado Springs native. My father is a retired army veteran and my mother immigrated here from South Korea. I love this city for its majestic surroundings but mostly because of its diversity. Colorado Springs is a melting pot of so many cultures and I am so pleased to be working with the culturally and linguistically diverse learners here at Mann Middle School.
This will be my sixth year teaching in Colorado. I recently returned with my wonderful family from a one year teaching opportunity in Thailand . My husband and I have been together for twenty years. We have three amazing children and one little shitzu-poodle named Neon.
When I am not in the classroom I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have recently started to explore the beautiful region that I grew up in; hiking on trails in and outside of the city limits.
This year is sure to be an interesting one. As we all navigate through the changes my hope is that we will show flexibility, resilience, and patience. May we also demonstrate strength and perserverance.
I am so glad to be a part of the Lancer team!!!
