Dear Casimir Pulaski School Families,
Hello, my name is Mary Haviland. I am your English as a New Language (ENL) teacher at Casimir Pulaski School for grades K-8. I was born in the Bronx. I went to kindergarten in Puerto Rico. Then I grew up in Larchmont, NY. I studied Spanish all through middle school, high school and college and attended the 'Instituto Internacional' in Madrid, Spain for 1 year. I graduated from Binghamton University with a double major in English Literature and Spanish. After teaching English as a Second Language in Hita, Japan, I decided to become an ESL teacher in New York. I have enjoyed teaching ENL in Yonkers schools since 1992. Currently, I live in Mamaroneck, with my husband and 2 dogs, Lance and Merlin. Our two children are away at college. My son Milo is at Stony Brook University and my daughter Sam is entering her first year at Princeton University, My favorite hobbies are walking, swimming, and biking and I love to read fantasy and mystery novels.
I am looking forward to seeing all my returning students and having an exciting 31st year teaching English As a New Language for Pulaski students.
All students should be reading or listening to books in English to improve their language skills and vocabulary. They can listen to many books on Benchmark. Each child should try to learn 5 new words each day!
