About Ms. Emmanuel
Hi! My name is Ms. Emmanuel, and I am the English language teacher at Windham Center School. I provide literacy support for students who do not speak English as a first language.
This is my second year at Windham Center School. I love to teach, and learn about the first languages of my students. In my spare time you can find me reading or spending time with my friends and family.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the ESOL program at Windham Center School.
