Elementary School

Ms. Karen Colbenson
Welcome to Ms. Colbenson's EL page! Here you will find information about me and my classes.

I am so happy to be working at Gage Elementary School this school year. I have a Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Notre Dame of Maryland University, and this is my 6th year of teaching.

Students in my classes receive daily instruction in all content areas with a focus on developing English fluency in all four language domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Before I was a teacher, I was a journalist, so I love to teach students about writing! 

You can follow my class on Twitter @colbensonELGage.
I look forward to meeting and building relationships with all of my students' families. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about your child.
