Welcome to Bridgeport Public Schools Bilingual, ESL & 

World Language Department

I am honored to represent the Bridgeport Public Schools as the Director of the Bilingual, ESL, and World Languages Department. We are a diverse school district with approximately 6000 English Language Learners. We strive to meet the academic, linguistic, social, and emotional needs of all of our students. As a result, we offer a variety of Bilingual Education services and World Language courses.

Our services include a Transitional Bilingual program, ESL classes, Dual Language programs, Native Language Tutoring, and Immigrant After-School Tutoring. The World Languages offered are Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Mandarin Chinese.

Our goal is to cultivate bilingual. bi-literate and bi-cultural students so that they are career and college-ready.

We are a collaborative group of educators working to continually improve our craft.

Sincerely,
Ana Sousa-Martins
