Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Diana Kalina
Hello! My name is Diana Kalina and I am the English as a New Language (ENL) teacher for students in grades kindergarten through third. I work with students who speak another language at home and need support in English. Students are selected to be in ENL based on their home language questionaire and the NYSITELL exam. I believe that knowing another language is an amazing skill and my goal is to make students comfortable in English while maintaining their native culture and language. I speak both Portuguese and Spanish so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
