Mrs. Denise Parent

Welcome to English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).  I am the ESOL teacher at two elementary schools in Aiken County ~ Warrenville, and North Augusta.  The ESOL program helps students develop their 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, 2,083 students do not speak English as their first language.  These students speak a total of 30 different languages.  The schools I serve have students who speak Spanish,Tagalog, Chinese, Vietnamese, French.  We are so proud of our diversity in Aiken County Public Schools!

I have taught for 34 years, with half of those years in Ohio.  My family moved to Aiken in 2001.  My husband also works for Aiken County Public Schools and is the elementary Social Studies Curriculum Interventionist.  Our son lives and works in Sarasota, Florida.  We love the warm weather of South Carolina and Florida, and we are happy to call Aiken our home!
