Orengo, Nicole (ESL)

Hello My Name Is...

Nicole Orengo


I am very happy to be returning this year to Woodfin as the ESL teacher!
I teach ELLs in all grades- K-4. I focus on teaching academic language in the four language domains- reading, writing, listening, and speaking. I help to provide language support to our students that speak a language other than English at home. This year, I am supporting the students in our new ELA curriculum- Wit & Wisdom. 

I received a Master's in Teaching in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Western Carolina University in 2012. I spent two years in Seoul, South Korea, and three years in Madrid, Spain teaching English to students in grades 1-10. I found out during that time that my passion is teaching elementary age students.

If you have any questions about the ESL program, or you would like to contact me, send me an email anytime or call the school. (If you are a parent or guardian of one of our EL students, you can also send me a message in the Talking Points app.)
