Welcome, Language Learners!
Reading every day is key to improving language skills.

My name is Adam Laurenzo; I am the ESL teacher for the 6th grade, as well as middle school newcomers. 

I work with English Learners and families to build language skills and abilities, explore culture, and prepare our students to be fully independent, bilingual citizens of the world.

I am an English Learner myself- I grew up in the Czech Republic before moving here to the U.S. I have a Bachelor's degree from The University of Texas, and am currently finishing my Master's degree with Hamline University in St. Paul. In my spare time I like to eat, sleep, and climb mountains. 2013-14 is my second year at Andersen.
