Specialists (English Language Learning)

Welcome!  As we begin our school year with remote learning, I want to introduce myself and the classes that I teach. My name is Marcella Sidars, and I am the English Language Development (ELD) teacher at Hulstrom. I have been teaching ELD class at Hulstrom for seven years.  In ELD class, we learn English by listening, speaking, reading and writing. Since our grade level groups are small, learning can be targeted to each student's needs and interests.  This year, we are introducing a new curriculum, called Wonders, which is well-designed for online learning and can be differentiated to appropriately challenge students.  Instruction will be accessed through Schoology and will use Seesaw as well.

I look forward to "seeing" all of my students in our online learning environment.

My office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 1:00 - 2:00, so email me at to set an appointment or with any questions, concerns, or just to say hi!  I will be available to talk with parents and students via Zoom or by phone.  Please keep in touch!
