• Welcome / Bienvenidos to Ms.Reed's Teacher Page 



    Dear Peekskill students and families,

    Warm wishes for the 2019-2020 school year. My name is Nina Reed and I am currently teaching ENL (English as a New Language) at PHS. If your student has been identified as an ELL (English language learner) by NYS, he/she is entitled to additional academic services for language acquisition with the use of the core content areas. I look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with students and parents in order to prepare students for academic success. I hope to encourage students to view their multilingualism as an asset. This year I will be providing serivce to grades 9-12. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
