hello kids 
    Welcome to

    ELL Facilitator
    Hello Parents!
    My name is Casey Goodman and I am so happy  to be the English Language Learner (ELL) teacher/facilitator at Cheatham for a second year. I'm from Tennessee but recently married a native Texan. I have three wonderful step-children who all attend Allen ISD. 
    I have a Master's degree in Teaching English Language Learners and I've worked with ELLs in Tennessee, Central and South America, Europe, and here in the DFW area. Also, I've worked with ELLs of various levels, ages, and language backgrounds. I love watching students grow and become confident in their English skills. Another highlight of my job is that I get to learn about my students' cultures and backgrounds.  
    It is my goal to support each of our ELLs as they increase their proficiency of the English Language, specifically in the areas of Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing and content vocabulary in a nurturing and respectful manner.
    If you need any assistance with an ELL related question, please do not hesitate to contact me.  E-mail is the best: casey.goodman@allenisd.org, but you may also call me at school at 972-396-3016. My voice mail extension is 6654. 
    My schedule has me moving in and out of classrooms all over the school so don't be worried if it is after school hours when I return your e-mail or phone call.
