Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Florence Camacho
My name is Florence Camacho. I am the English as a New Language (ENL) teacher at R. J. Bailey School. I have been fortunate to work at Bailey for the past 19 years.
The English as a New Language (ENL) Program at R. J. Bailey School offers the English Language Learners, (ELLs) the opportunity to acquire second language proficiency and to become educated bilingual/bicultural adults.
I work very closely with the home-based teachers as well as the other ENL teacher. My goal is to facilitate the development of proficiency in the English language. Students in the Program are taught basic communicative skills in addition to developing reading comprehension, composition writing, the pronunciation of words, and building vocabulary.
Having been an English Language Learner myself, and having gone through similar experiences, I feel a personal connection to my students.
My relationship with my students is based on mutual respect. I try to foster a safe, challenging and joyful classroom. I create a learning environment where my students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
I am looking forward to many more fantastic years at R. J. Bailey School.
