Welcome to our Classroom Website
    Greetings! My name is Tanya Novak, and I teach English as a Second Language at Evergreen Park World Cultures Community School to students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. I have been teaching English as a Second Language for about 34 years, and I have taught ESL in the Anoka Hennepin School district for 15 years. I received my bachelor's degree in Spanish and Portuguese and my master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Minnesota. I completed my Kindergarten through 12th grade ESL licensure program at Hamline University. The foreign languages I have studied include Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, and Russian, so I have a very good understanding of the language learning process. I have lived in Brazil and Germany, so I also have an understanding of cross-cultural differences and adapting to a new culture. I love meeting people from all different cultures. My interests include gardening, swimming, handcrafts, and spending time with friends. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family this year. If you ever have questions, please call me or write me an e-mail.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
