Hello! My name is Lynnette McCrea and I am an ELD Teacher at Highlands Community Charter School. I currently teach beginning level students at the Folsom Boulevard site. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to teach English to students from many different countries in various learning environments. I've taught literacy level to advanced level students in elementary schools, community programs, private companies, colleges, universities, and now, high school.
In my English classes, we practice reading, writing, grammar, listening, speaking, pronunciation, and spelling. We learn and practice these skills through thematic units that are designed to help students with life skills and adjusting to life in the U.S. I use a communicative approach to teaching, so my lessons are interactive and require students to use their English language skills. If you are shy, don't worry. The students are friendly and patient because they know that everyone is here to learn. Come learn with us!
