Danville's ELL program is designed to help students who are learning Engish as a second language to reach proficient levels of achievement in the academic areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing in English. We nurture self-efficacy and self-identity in our English learners by recognizing and celebrating each student's linguistic and cultural background.
We engage parents/families to be active partners in the educational process.
Ms. Sarisky attended schools in New Jersey and California before graduating from Millville Area High School in Millville PA. She received her Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, 7-12 English option from Penn State University.
