Hello! My name is Kathy Haynes.My family and I moved to Oklahoma in 1987. In 1993 I began teaching ELL (English Language Learner) for Moore Schools. I am currently the ELL teacher for Bryant, Heritage Trails, and Sooner.A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: Teaching ELL, Dr. Pepper, Sports - especially basketball, Sweet Tea, my six grandchildren and readingAs an ELL teacher it is my goal to challenge each student to increase and improve his/her English skills. It is my hope they will become not only bi-lingual, but bi-literate. Fluency in English, as well as their native language, allows the student to participate more fully in the classroom setting. Through small group or one on one interaction, it is my objective to encourage and lead my students in becoming confident and comfortable when using English while continuing to take pride in their native language.
