According to Mr. Jansen, the primary focus of his work is to “help make the academic language in content classes more accessible.” Academic language is “what is needed to describe complex ideas and abstract concepts, and unlike the informal language that English Language Learners seem to learn on their own with little-to-no instruction, this academic language that students encounter in classrooms, textbooks and standardized tests must be taught,” says Mr. Jansen.

"Armatage is very fortunate to have ELL support for students with a second language,” says Principle Joan Franks, “Mr. Jansen is very committed to connecting with our ELL families.”
