Hello! Hola! Merhaba! Ciao! Bonjour! Guten Tag!
My name is Ayse Takhim. This is my 14th year teaching in Belleville. I teach ESL for grades K-5 at School #4. I speak three languages and love to travel and learn about different cultures. I enjoy working and helping children learn a second language. I am a firm believer that second language acquisition can be attained with a strong command of the native language. Please continue to work with your child in your native language.
Our ESL program supports and extends what the children learn in the classroom. We learn language through the content areas. Our ESL classroom is a safe and welcoming environment for students of all backgrounds.
I work closely with the classroom teachers to support the students in their learning. Your children work with me in small groups. Please join me in this amazing journey of discovery and learning that begins with you and your child at home. I look forward to working with your child.
