Kimberly (Sarisky) Slear - English Language Learners
Kimberly A. (Sarisky) Slear M.Ed
K-12 ELL Program Specialist
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.
