ESL Parent & Family Engagement

Welcome to the ESL department of Carrollton Classical Academy!

Patsy Sutherland is our campus ESL teacher, and she is married with three children that have been raised bilingual. She has a masters degree in Bilingual Education, 10 years experience in ESL/Bilingual education and personal experience in 2nd language acquisition, since her family moved to Texas from Buenos Aires, Argentina when she was only 6 years old. She did not know a single word in English and learned in school without ESL services. She would have loved to have some support and that is why she is passionate about helping our students!

Each month the ESL department publishes Parent Engagement newsletters that are filled with all kinds of useful information; check it out below!
