Olga Navai, ESL Teacher

Olga NavaiI started my education and carrier as a teacher in Kazakhstan, Almaty where I received my master's and bachelor's degrees in speech therapy, special education, music and English. I've had over than 10 years of teaching experience when I came to the USA in 1999. I continued my education in America taking classes for my teaching credential and master's degree with National University. After I received my Multiple Subjects teaching credential and Master's degree in Cross -Cultural teaching I was hired as an ESL teacher with GGC. Having worked in American public schools for 4 years provided me with working experience in addition We understand what our children experience when they come to America and we put great effort in delivering the best learning experience for our students and helping them to adjust to a new country and environment. Let me tell you a few words about the program we are currently using for our ELL students. We have researched numerous programs that are designed for ELL and chose the one which we thought would be the best for our students. It is published by Oxford University press and has 7 levels that let students acquire various English skills step by step and provide a solid foundation for further learning. In addition to this program I try to use a variety of resources in order to provide enrichment activities and additional practice for development of English skills. Most of our students make faster progress if they have an opportunity to practice English skills at home. Your help support and encouragement is very important for their success at school.
