Teacher Bio Curriculum Daily Activities

My name is Ellie McElhenny and this is my 1st year at MIMM's.

I am really excited to start the new year and to get to know students!

I am from Chippewa Falls, WI and moved to Eau Claire for university.  I just returned to the midwest from living in Seoul, South Korea for the past 3.5 years.  I taught English there, and also got to travel around Southeast Asia.  It was really fun, but I am happy to be back!

I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology and History from the University of WI- Eau Claire.  I returned to school while in South Korea to get my teaching license in ESL (English as a Second Language.)

A few things about myself are I love watching scary movies, and cooking all types of food.  





We have varied levels of English proficiency at this school so there is not a set curriculum that we use in each grade. Instruction is tailored to meet the students at their level. We also make sure to provide a variety of hands-on activities to help the students engage in their learning.

For our newcomers (WIDA levels 1.0-2.9) we use the ACCESS Newcomers Curriculum.

For the students that are WIDA levels 3.0-4.5 we focus on the following skills to ensure students are equipped to succeed in their content classes:

  • Main Idea
  • Summarizing
  • Theme
  • Text Features
  • Context Clues
  • Compare and Contrast
  • Cause and Effect
  • Writing 
  • Grammar
  • Comprehension
