Mrs. Denise Parent

Welcome to English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).  I am an itinerant ESOL teacher at two elementary schools in Aiken County ~ 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. I support Multilingual Learners with 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 38 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!  I plan on reading as much as possible this summer!  We love the warm weather of South Carolina, and we are happy to call Aiken our home!

The easiest way to contact me is through e-mail:

I absolutely love working with my ESOL students.  Please contact me if you have any questions.  I am certain the 2021-2022 school year will be the best year ever!
