Welcome to English Language Development (ELD) at Tohickon Middle School.  My name is Lori Cucinotta, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with English Learners in Tohickon Middle.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the ELD Program.  I will be more than happy to help.  I look forward to learning together!
