Alisa Djakovic - Paraprofessional for English Language Learners
This is my third year in the district. I have my Bachelors in Psychology from Michigan State University, an ELL certification and currently working on my Masters in Clinical Mental Health. I was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and lived in Germany as a war refugee for 5 years. In childhood, my family and I moved to the states and have lived here ever since. Besides English, I speak Bosnian and German. I am a coffee enthusiast and enjoy exercising and long, aimless car rides with no final destination. :)
My professional goal for the year is to increase reading comprehension and writing structure and fluency, especially with my 3rd and 4th grade students. I am also excited to work closely with new international students to get them better acclimated with the English language and schools in the states!
Five words to describe my classroom: eclectic, accepting, focused, interesting and challenging.
- PTA popcorn will be on sale at the end of each week this month for 50 cents a bag!
- Our next meeting will be on Thursday, April 7 at 6:30 pm
- A Mother-Son Event will be held on Wednesday, March 27 at Zap Zone!
Did you know that research shows that the more parents are involved with the school and partners with teachers, the more successful their children are? Our teachers use a variety of ways to communicate with parents including email, websites, Class Dojo, phone calls and of course parent conferences. Please be sure to keep in contact with your child's teacher and ask your child what they learn each day. Our families will soon have the opportunity to participate in a course for parents called "Love and Logic". It's a wonderful program for both educators and parents and I highly recommend that you check out the flyer that was emailed. Great things are happening at Rosedale!
