Mrs. Kayo Mitra

Welcome to ESL program!


My name is Kayo Mitra, and I am the EL Specialist at Colony Bend Elementary and Colony Meadows Elementary. This is my 28th year in education, 18 years of which have been in ESL. I am originally from Japan, but I have been living in this country for over 30 years. Learning a new language is my passion! Other than English, I can speak Japanese and Spanish fluently, and I am currently learning Mandarin, Portuguese, Korean, and French. My family includes a wonderful husband and two sons. We are a multicultural family, and we are all multilingual. As a family, we love to travel to many different places.


I love my job as an EL Speacialist. I support and coach classroom teachers so that they can provide the best learning opportunities for our ESL students. It is a challenge to learn a new language, especially if you are new to the country. At our school, we strive to create a safe learning environment where students can feel safe and welcomed. Each student brings a gift of talents, and it is our job to help them show their talents while learning a new language. I believe that the teamwork between teachers and parents is crucial in student's success. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding ESL program.
