English Language Learners

My name is Katie Sandsmark and I am the English language learner (ELL) teacher at Nova Classical Academy. I graduated with a master’s of education from the University of Minnesota and a teaching license to teach English as a second language. I have a background in working with students who do not speak English as their primary language, as I have taught high school ELL, as well as adults in China. I am passionate about not only teaching English, but also about supporting students through their academic careers to ensure a successful and positive school experience.


Along with a team of fantastic support staff, Kate Tetmeyer and Mary Jones, I am excited to work with the ELL students at Nova. We will be working with students in courses where they may need additional academic or language support, as well as during their House time at the end of the day. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions at any time.
