Welcome to Mrs. Morozova's ENL Class!


Dear Parents/ Guardians, 

I am very excited to welcome you and your children to our school and our ESL/ENL (English as a New Language) classes.  My name is Mrs. Morozova. This year I will be teaching English as a New Language (ENL, formerly ESL) to grades Kindergarten through 3.  

This webpage has been created so I can keep you informed about different things we are doing in ENL.  My goal is to help students succeed in their regular classroom by differentiating their classroom curriculum. 

If you have any questions, or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.   Email is the best and fastest way to contact me. 

My email:

Also, please note that on Tuesdays from7:35- till 8:10 a.m. I am available to meet with you and/ or talk on the phone.

   If your child in grades 2 and 3 I ask that they bring on one composition notebook that we will use for ESL homework and vocabulary work.

Please check my ENL website for calendars, bilingual glossaries, things we are working on in ENL classes and other valuable resources. 

I look forward to working with you and your children this school year.


Mrs. Morozova,

What is ENL?

Freestanding English as a new language (ENL) programs provide instruction in English with home language support, emphasizing English language acquisition. Students in freestanding ENL programs can come from many different language backgrounds, and English may be the only common language among the students.

Prior to the 2015-16 School Year, ELLs were initially designated as beginner, intermediate, or advanced based on NYS exams.

Beginning September 2015, there are 5 proficiency levels for ELLs based on the NYSITELL and NYSESLAT; entering, emerging, transitioning, expanding, and the fifth level, proficient/commanding, continues to indicate the student is not an ELL.

In our school we have two ENL programs:

Push-in model: an ENL teacher works with ELLs in collaboration with general education classroom teachers to provide language acquisition and vocabulary support. 4 periods a week (entering and emerging, transitioning, expanding and commanding)

Pull-out model: ELLs who spend the majority of their day in all-English content instruction are brought together from various classes for English-acquisition-focused instruction. 4 periods a week  (entering, emerging students).

I will be pushing in to grades K, 1, 2 and 3 and pulling out these grades.
