ESL (English as a Second Language)

children from around the world

Our ESL teacher provides support to students who come to elementary school speaking another primary language. This program helps those students gain academic and personal skills needed for learning and success. The goal of this program is for the students to eventually become proficient in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English.

Meet the Teacher

Hello, my name is April Torres. I have been an educator since 1993 and I have been working with the Russellville School District since 1998 at Center Valley and Sequoyah as an ESL teacher’s aide. I love working with these students as they are our future. I have been married to Gustavo Torres since 1988 and we have three awesome sons; Gustavo J.R., Alonso, and Emiliano. I’m a member of the PAG Assembly of God church. I am so excited and thankful to be a part of the Center Valley family.
