Specialists (English Language Learning)
Hello! My name is Heather Ellis, I am the English Language Development (ELD) teacher at Hulstrom. I am new this year to Hulstrom in this role. I have been a familiar face at Hulstrom as a guest teacher for the past 11 years. In addition to being a Certified Elementary Education Teacher, I hold an English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement in the state of Utah, as well as a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (CLD) endorsement, here in Colorado.
In ELD class, we learn English by listening, speaking, reading and writing. We have small grade level groups, therefore learning can be targeted to each student's needs and interests. This year we will be using an online curriculum called Wonders. Instruction will be accessed through Schoology and Seesaw.
I love teaching! I am excited and blessed to be able to work with a great group of students here at Hulstrom! In my spare time, I enjoy crafting, being outdoors, and spending time with my husband and three kids. I love all things Mickey Mouse and Suzy Zoo, Coke Zero, anything dark chocolate, and peppermint hot chocolate!
