English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)


Ms. Rausch - ESOL Teacher


I am beginning my 22nd year at Charter Oak. I have worked with students from all over the world and love teaching and learning from these amazing students. In addition, I teach adults who are learning English at Capital Community College. My interests include traveling and gardening.

At Charter Oak International Academy, the ESOL and TLP programs work with English Language Learners. These students speak another language besides English in their homes. The children receive instruction at the appropriate grade level. They also receive personalized English lessons. The frequency and depth of the instruction depends on the language needs of the individual students.

Our program's goal is to develop the language skills that are necessary for students to achieve academic success in the mainstream classroom. In addition, we integrate our ESOL curriculum with our International Baccalaureate Program as well as the Common Core Standards.

Our ESOL students work with us to develop their vocabulary, listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. There’s a great deal of English our students need to know!

Our students come from all parts of the world including:

  • Korea

  • Vietnam

  • China

  • Philippines

  • Egypt

  • Iraq

  • India

  • Pakistan

  • Nepal

  • Puerto Rico

  • Colombia

  • Mexico

  • Peru

  • Honduras

  • Brazil

  • Portugal

  • Ethiopia

Charter Oak welcomes these wonderful cultures and children to our school!
