There are so many important positions in every school but sometimes it can be challenging to understand just what each person does and does not do. As ESL teachers, we may have come across some misconceptions that other staff members have about us and our role. We all want to work together as best as possible so that we can help our ELL students be successful. In order to do that, we may need to help other staff members understand what it is that we do and how we help our students.

It is so important that ESL teachers and homeroom teachers are on the same page when it comes to helping our ELL students. There may be assumptions made from both sides simply because there isn’t a clear understanding of each teacher’s position. If we can address these assumptions, we can work better together to provide a high quality learning experience for our students which is everyone’s goal!

In this episode, I am sharing five reminders to help in building a relationship between ESL and homeroom teachers, where these misconceptions may come from, and how to move past them to best serve ELL students.
