ESL on the Ridge
Hello, I am Melodie Hardwick. I have been teaching ESL for six years and this is my second year in Maryville. I am originally from Georgia and love living in East Tennessee. I love my job teaching ESL and look forward to working with students and families this year!
In ESL, we will focus on developing knowledge of English in all areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. We use a holistic approach to learning in which students learn English through content. We also focus on working cooperatively with teachers and students to grow as much as possible in language development.
