Mrs. Ana Diggs, ESOL

Hello My Name Is...Ana Diggs.

One more year, we are ready to navigate the English language in our ESOL classroom!
This year I will be offering 2 different models of instruction:pull out and co-teaching.
I am very excited to teach these students in their natural setting,the mainstream classroom .It is also a great opportunity for collaboration and feedback.
As of September, all teachers have been trained in CAN DO DESCRIPTORS.This wonderful tool will allow us to monitor their progress in Listening , Speaking, Reading and Writing.
I will be helping the students using Words Their Way as well as Reading A-Z ( new subscriptions for testing preparation and writing will be our main focus).
I like to use hands on  with ELLs since it is the best method to retain information.
Monitoring students with new tools is another improved add on that I will be implementing with mainstream teachers.
Please don't hesitate to email me or call my extension if you need any help with Ells.
Please visit the ESOL section in our school page for websites and tools for parents,teachers and students.
As a personal note, I am a native of Spain and I have been living in the US for 15 years!
I love nature, reading and talk to friends.
I have a dog named Chiqui that keeps me busy but I love her very much.
Very excited to start a new year at BRES!!!
