INTRODUCTION

My name is Mrs. Renee Manning. I am the ELL (English Language Learners)
Coordinator and teacher for South Panola School District. I serve pre-k
through 12th grades. My role is to help students in our district whose
native language is not English both in English language acquisition and
academic content. My goal is for my students to be successful both socially
and academically in speaking, listening, reading, and writing the English
language. I also want them to understand and be able to function in our
American culture.

I was a classroom teacher for 24 years, 21 of which were spent in a
kindergarten class.
