About Mrs. Ewing
Hello students and families! I am so thrilled to have this opportunity to spend each day with you as we grow and learn together!
My name is Liz Ewing, and I am the English as a second language (ESL) teacher for North Hills Elementary School (4-6) and Hayshire Elementary School (K-3) in the Central York School District. This will be my tenth year teaching for CYSD. Previously, I spent six years as a first grade teacher at Hayshire Elementary School (K-3). I am honored to be a part of a district where it's always a great day to be a panther!
I am also an adjunct professor at York College of Pennsylvania where I teach Instructional Needs of English Learners to undergraduate education majors.
I grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and am the daughter of Vietnamese immigrant parents. Although my Vietnamese language skills are limited as a result of being the youngest of four children, I value our cultural traditions... and cuisine! Being surrounded by family who had limited English proficiency inspired me to pursue a career in teaching English as a second language.
I completed both my undergraduate and graduate studies at Millersville University of Pennsylvania. In 2007, I completed my undergraduate degree in elementary/early childhood education. In May of 2013, I completed my M.Ed. in Language & Literacy. My international travels include a semester abroad in New Zealand and a 10-day course in Northern Ireland. My educational experiences have helped shaped me as a person and teacher.
Currently, I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with my husband, Paul, our two sons, Jackson and Davis, and our daughter Emma. Jackson is six, Davis is four, and Emma was born in July! We also have a basset hound/beagle mix, named Jenny Jenkins. Our house is quite busy! Besides trying to keep up with my children, I love to read, cook up new recipes, and drink coffee on the front porch.
I look forward to spending this year together and can't wait to see what lies ahead.
