The goal of the ESOL program is to help the English Language Learners to learn enough English to function linguistically and culturally in the Montgomery County Public Schools and in the mainstream of American society.

superpowerMaria York, ESOL teacher and 6th grade Spanish teacher 

I attended Washington University in St. Louis (Sociology major, Spanish minor).  After graduating, I worked in Costa Rica for a year as volunteer English teacher, where I discovered that I enjoyed teaching.  Upon returning home, I completed a master’s degree program at the University of Pennsylvania.  I have been teaching in MCPS since 1994 and have taught grades 3 – 6, Spanish IA/IB, and worked as a staff development teacher and a consulting teacher.   When I am not working, I love to go to the gym, compete in triathlons, travel, read, and bake.
