Hello Hawks! My name is Tambra Camp and I am the ESL teacher at Kernersville Middle School. I have been teaching for 27 years and have been teaching ESL for about 12 years. I have taught in both Wilkes and Alleghany counties before moving to Forsyth county in 2014. I graduated from Caldwell Community College and Warren Wilson College, but have taken classes at Appalachian State University, Lenoir Rhyne College, and North Carolina State University. I have been married 27 years to my husband, Gary. We have two children Andrew, 22, and Alison, 19, and one spoiled dog, Carlos.
Although I am considered an Encore teacher, ESL is not an elective. Your child is placed in my room based on their English language proficiency. Every year in February we give the ACCESS test to all ESL students to test their language proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Your child is placed in ESL class according to their proficiency levels on this test. It is important that they do their best on the test so that we can best meet their needs.
