Ms. Christine Darrow

Welcome Back to Smithfield Selma High School for the 2021-2022 school year. 

My name is Christine Darrow and I look forward to teaching and guiding students as they grow academically and linguistically throughout the school year.

In addition to improving upon academic language skills, students will also receive instructional support to succeed in their other classes. 

Professional Background

I graduated from East Carolina University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in English and began teaching high school English after graduation.

In 2007, I added a second professional educator's license in K-12 English as a Second Language and have enjoyed working with English Learners ever since.

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
