Ms. Liz Groh


Welcome to ESL with Mrs. Groh! I am so excited to be working with our K-2 ESL students at West Smithfield Elementary. I have been teaching for 15 years in North Carolina.  I am from Chicago, and went to Hope College in Michigan for a Elementary Education/Science degree. I attended ECU for graduate classes to teach ESL. I love reading and writing with students, and hearing all the wonderful, creative, and new ideas students have to share. At home I like to read books, or be outside hiking or bird watching.
