Easing young students into English
from Reading Eagle Press
Paula Florez entered Reading's 13th & Union Elementary School to start her first day of first grade. Sarah Steiner, an English language learner resource teacher for the school, greeted the 6-year-old girl in the office with wide eyes and a bright smile. "Come on, girlfriend," Steiner said as she led Paula by the hand to her second-floor classroom. "Let's go." Earlier that morning, Paula had visited the Reading Opportunity Center for Children to test her English skills. She is one of 180 ELL students in the school.
