Mrs. Jami Weigand
Hello Lakewood Creek Families!
My name is Jami Weigand and I am the ESL Specialist here at LC.
Teaching ESL is my passion. In fact, ESL was the first endorsement that I recieved after graduating at Aurora Universtity. I had met some wonderful students through my experiences in Dist. 200. They inspired me to persue ESL as my full-time carreer choice. Not too long ago, a similar experience led to wanting to know more about Special Education. Of course, this let to my next decision to go back to school, at University of St. Francis, where I recieved my special education endorsement. I, since, have furthered my education with a Master's Degree. I am and will continue to learn more about ESL, best practices, and anything else that pops up!!
Families, if you need support, please reach out. I am here for your student and for you!
Here at LC our ESL students are workiong hard developing their Academic English Language. Through the use of our ReadyGen curriculum, a variety of teaching techniques, individualized lessons, sutdents are devoloping a rich understanding and use of both Academic and Social Language. It is amazing to watch students' progress through each year and sometimes year to year. I love teaching Eglish Learners because they are all so unique in their development!
Here's to another great year!!
