Hello! Hola! Merhaba! Ciao! Bonjour! Guten Tag!
My name is Ayse Takhim. I have been teaching in Belleville for 17 years. I speak three languages and love to travel and learn about different cultures. I work with learners who are acquiring literacy and English language in grades K-6. 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 where they attain Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing skills.
I work closely with the classroom teachers to support the students in their learning. Your children work with me in small groups.The goal of the ESL Program is to provide the students with the skills necessary to transition and maintain success in their classroom.
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.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. When we work together our children succeed!
