Welcome to the English Learning Department Webpage for Marie Murphy!

About Mrs. Blitz: I have been teaching English Learners as an EL Teacher or in a monolingual core teaching class of diverse learners for over 10 years.  I have taught EL Education for 4 years. I have also co-taught or taught all middle school subjects, various elementary grades and SEL courses.  I have a Master's Degree in ESL (EL) Education and Curriculum and Instruction. 

Class Rules: To be kind to each other and show empathy. To honor each other's culture and find similarities and differences in order to connect. To learn and grow each day in learning English and be more confident and proficient in all core subjects. To have fun while learning and to look forward to coming to the EL class each day!

Philosophy of Education: Providing a welcoming environment to honor diversity while supporting social emotional learning and enthusiasm for learning new things with the focus on improving English language acquisition skills in Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
