Welcome to English Language Development Department

At SkyView Academy we are proud to be a multicultural school. We are one of the most diverse schools in Douglas County. We have many students that speak another language in their home and encourage families to use their native language at home. Being multilingual is an asset in today’s world. Knowing multiple languages has shown to be beneficial for brain development and is a great achievement. 

At SkyView we use various service models to support multilingual learners. We serve students using an inclusion model which ensures that students receive the majority of English language support in the general education classroom. The service models featured at SkyView are:

  1. Co-teaching: Co-teaching pairs the ESL and content teacher to co-teach content courses.  Collaboration leads to lesson planning and instruction tailored to both linguistic and academic needs of ELs.
  2. Push-In: In Push-In ELD, English Learners experience targeted ELD inside the regular classroom setting according to their specific linguistic needs.  Push-In ELD may be connected with the content currently experienced in the classroom, and the focus is ELD.
  3. Pull-Out: In Pull-Out ELD, English Learners temporarily experience targeted or intensive ELD instruction outside the regular classroom setting according to their specific linguistic needs. 

Sheltered Content Courses: Sheltered Content Courses can be taken by students who do not have the linguistic capacity to be successful in the typical content courses. Courses such as ESL English and ESL Elective are offered to meet these needs.

I am thrilled to be joining the SkyView team this year as an ELD Instructor! Although I am originally from Colorado and grew up in Summit County and Buena Vista, I had to move away in elementary school. I have missed Colorado ever since.

I am thrilled to be joining the SkyView team this year as an ELD Instructor! Although I am originally from Colorado and grew up in Summit County and Buena Vista, I had to move away in elementary school. I have missed Colorado ever since. I went to college and graduate school in NYC for film and worked as a film editor for a few years before getting the opportunity to teach ESL in Japan. While there, I fell in love with teaching and upon returning to the States got my Master's degree in Education in NYC. I have been working as a special education teacher at an elementary school in Manhattan for several years before recently finding myself back in Colorado. I love camping, reading, cooking, and traveling, and am looking forward to being a part of the SVA community!

I think what really sets SkyView apart is how much the teachers and staff care about you. I was able to build a relationship with every teacher and staff member from the literature teacher I’ve had since freshman year, the nice lunch lady, and to the Principal who knew the entire middle school by name. It’s really inspiring to know how much everyone cares for you within the school, and I think that’s something that was able to push me to meet my goals both academically and non academically. -Jenny Yoon, 2021 SVA Graduate
