Amber Schlueter

My name is Amber Schlueter. This is my seventh year teaching English as a Second Language, and my third year teaching at Coronado. My family and I moved to Littleton in August of 2013 from Minnesota. In my free time, I love to travel with my husband, Jason, and our sons, Avery (13) and Ethan (7). As a family, we love learning about different cultures, seeing new places, and meeting people from around the world. Over the years, we have had several extended overseas experiences in Tlaxcala, Mexico; Diriamba, Nicauragua; and in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates; each giving us a small glimpse of what life is like as a second language learner. As an educator, I have teaching licenses in Elementary Education and Culturally and Linguistically perse Education through the state of Colorado. I am committed to life-long learning, and am currently pursuing a master's degree in Teacher Leadership through Regis University.

Fun Fact: Coronado families represent 12 different languages!

At Coronado, we celebrate our persity and learn from one another! Our ESL program provides support to our students who have been identified as having a language other than English in their background. ESL teachers and classroom teachers help students to develop English proficiency in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. English language support can include weekly collaboration with classroom teachers, co-teaching, targeted coaching sessions, short-term strategy groups, and flexible groups that may incorporate native English speakers working on similar skills. The ESL teacher works collaboratively with classroom teachers to design instruction, enrichment, and interventions that help English language learners meet and exceed rigorous state academic standards.

Each English learner is in a unique place in their development of the language. We consider many factors when designing English language intervention including ACCESS for ELL results, state assessments, informal observations, classroom teacher input, student input, and parent input. It is my goal to help all English language learners progress in their English language development to reach native-like proficiency, while encouraging continued proficiency in a student's first language. I would be happy to discuss your child's inpidual plan and progress at any time.
