Welcome to Mrs. Brokenshire’s Home Page
Our program is now called the LIEP (Language Instruction Educational Program)
My name is Gina Brokenshire, and I am the ESL Teacher at Kratzer Elementary School. I have been teaching in the Parkland School District for over 20 years. I graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I began my career teaching third grade and kindergarten for several years. After obtaining my ESL Certification, I became an ESL teacher. My education, as well as experiences teaching, have given me many valuable resources to share with you.
I hope that this site will give you some helpful information about our culture, as well as our educational system.
Have fun exploring!
***Happy New Year!***
