Ms. Eileen Berasi

Hi! I'm glad you visited my homepage! I have been teaching ENL (English as a New Language, formerly ESL) at Springhurst Elementary School for the past five years. This year I am working with grades 2 through 5.

Previously, I taught English as a Second Language as well as Art in the Bronx. And previous to that, I ran my own business as a cartographer, making maps for over twenty years, including working in the New York Times map department.

It is obvious that I love maps, but I also love words as well (big Scrabble fan!) and that is why I am now helping newcomers, as well as students whose first language at home is not English, become proficient in the language. A second career as an educator is proving to be a very rewarding experience!

That is why, most of all, I love my students and look forward to seeing them each day at Springhurst!
