Meet the ESOL Teacher

Diane Frijia

My name is Mrs. Frijia, and I teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Timonium as well as two Mrs. FrijiaFrijiaother nearby schools in Baltimore County.  We have several English Language Learners in grades K through 5 at Timonium coming from countries all over the world.

My mission is to improve the speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills of the students in the program, as well as to coordinate strategies for effective teaching with classroom teachers.  We are using a new text series from Pearson Longman called Cornerstone.  The students are really enjoying it!  The series focuses on developing language arts skills with thematic units written for each level of language development. 


If you would like more information about the ESOL Program, please contact me at the school or send an email to
