Kaye McNeil

My name is Kaye McNeil and currently I teach English as a Second Language to 7th, 8th, and 9th grade international students at Aiken Preparatory School in Aiken, S.C. I teach each of of my students individually for a forty-five minute class. My students range from a 7th grader, who at the beginning of the school year had limited English, to my 9th graders, one of whom has been studying English since 2nd grade and the other student has studied in England before coming to APS. My individual class instruction is necessary since my students' proficiencies in English vary.

In this lesson I will be teaching spatial prepositions using graphics and an explanation of the relationship between the objects or persons.
