Caren Kalman » Biography


This is my first year at McKinley School.  I am here for two periods in the afternoons to teach the ELL students in the kindergarten class.  In the mornings I teach ESL at Kennedy School to the 5th, 6th, and 7th grade bilingual and ESL students.
I have been in the North Bergen school district since 2000.  This is my 19th year here.  I enjoy teaching ESL very much.  I always learn from my students about their languages, their customs, and their cultures.  It has been a privilege to be a part of this district and to serve the students of North Bergen.
This past summer my husband and I visited our son and his family in Denver, Colorado.  We also paid a visit to Vail.  Denver is known as "The Mile High City," and Vail is a popular destination for skiing.  We enjoyed seeing our grandchildren who are two and seven years old.
