Welcome to my new classroom website!My name is Dasha Colvin, and I am a middle school teacher of English as a New Language (ENL) at D'Youville Porter Campus School #3. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Buffalo State College. During my student teaching, I came across many students from different countries around the world. With so many languages represented in the classroom, I knew that I would need additional education in order to meet the needs of the English Language Learners (ELLs). In 2013, I received my Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Soon after, I was hired to teach the talented 7th and 8th graders at School #3!
I strive to teach students the skills that they will need to be successful in many aspects of life including academic, professional, social, and personal. With a strong partnership with parents, I know we can create a community of college-bound students who will make a difference in the world.
