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 eighth 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 Language 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, and our two sons, Jackson and Davis. Jackson is five and Davis is three! 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.
