Ms. Mark (Ednalino)

Hi, my name is Heather Mark and I love working at Kullerstrand Elementary as the ESL teacher. It is a privilege to work with the Kullerstrand staff and students. This is my 14th year of teaching! I previously taught 7 years in the classroom as a kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 5th grade teacher. This is my 7th year as an ESL teacher, and I am thrilled to be utilizing my masters degree in Linguistically Diverse Education. I look forward to working with English Language Learners (ELLs) at Kullerstrand to support them in their English development.

Within Jeffco, there are 4,068 NEP/LEP ELLs.  These students represent 142 different languages.  The ESL program of Jeffco ensures that our wonderful ELLs receive appropriate and equitable education.  ELLs must not only learn the content areas at their particular grade level (reading, writing, math, science and social studies), but they also have to learn aspects of a second language such as new vocabulary, different grammatical forms, spelling patterns, and discourse patterns.  It is the job of the ESL Teacher to support these students in developing fluency in the English language. To do this, we work closely with teachers to help them include ESL strategies in their instruction and to ensure that all four domains of language (speaking, listening, reading and writing) are covered in all content areas.
