Hello - I'm Ms. Mercer, ESL/ELL teacher here at Washington. Let me tell you a bit about myself. After living in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Iowa, my family moved to Nebraska. I graduated from Wayne State College, Wayne Nebraska, with an education degree, and I received my Master's degree from UNL/Lincoln. I have taught Pre-K/K ESL or ELL all the way to Adult Learners. I enjoy gardening, art, cooking, reading, biking, kayaking, hiking and camping, movies, listening to music, my cat Oscar, and - working with students and their families.
In ESL, 1st grade through 6th grade students will build their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills every day. Kindergarten students are "Inclusion" with their peers.
