 Welcome to the English As A Secondary Language Program (ESL).

My name is Roxana Iulia Dalaban, and I am the ESL teacher serving the ELL students at Harris Road Middle School and  Northwest Cabarrus Middle School in Cabarrus County (2019-2020).

I am looking forward to a great 2019-2020 school year! 

Please keep checking my website for important updates and assignments related to the ESL program. 

*PARENTS: DURING THE ON LINE LEARNING TIME due to the emergency situation we all are going through - please encourage the students to use RAZ KIDS program we use in the class, just to keep up with learning for the ESL class.

All students were instructed how to use the program, and they all have the basic directions on how to log in and use the program. Please e-mail me if you are having trouble logging in, or any other issues related to RAZ KIDS. 

ELL STUDENTS who see me for the ESL class every day:

use RAZ KIDS LEVELED BOOKS for 15 to 30 minutes daily for ESL during the period when we are on - line learning.


**The program allows you to LISTEN to  both fiction and nonfiction books being READ ALOUD to you, and then you can  RECORD yourselves READ TO SELF (and I can check the recording); you have to pass a COMPREHENSION QUIZ, and finally you  can CREATE a PIECE of WRITING by answering  questions based on the book.

*The writing part can be sent to me via e-mail (take a picture of it and attach it to my e-mail)/ *this is optional.


I can send messages in the Chat provided by the program, I check, send rewards and ...grade all your work … (if it comes to this for Q4).

* Parents, please remember to check your children's ESL Progress Reports on quarterly basis if they are actively /daily served in the pull out English As A Secondary Language service (ESL), Level 1, Level 2 . In other words, if your child attends my ESL class every day of the week for one period, as their schedule should say, you should receive their ESL grades along with their homeroom grades.
