Mrs. Denise Parent

Welcome to English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).  I am an itinerant ESOL teacher at three elementary schools in Aiken County ~ Graniteville Elementary School, North Aiken Elementary School, and Warrenville Elementary School.  The ESOL program helps students develop their English language proficiency and focuses on listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English and supports their content learning in all curriculums.  Of our nearly 25,000 students in Aiken County, over 2,000 students do not speak English as their first language.  These students speak a total of 26 different languages.  We are so proud of our diversity in Aiken County Public Schools!

I have taught for 37 years.  My family moved from Ohio to Aiken in 2001.  My husband, Dan,  also works for Aiken County Public Schools and is the elementary Social Studies Curriculum Interventionist.  Our son lives and works in Sarasota, Florida.  We enjoy the beach and kayaking!  We love the warm weather of South Carolina and Florida, and we are happy to call Aiken our home!
