Do you have English learners in your classroom? Do you expect to have English learners in the future? According to demographic trends, the answer is yes. Many Texas teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, and parents come to us asking for support. They are often seeking to make sure their English learners progress in TELPAS and STAAR, and that their day-to-day interactions with their students increase student well being. Are your English learners engaged? How do you make sure they are comprehending? Are you being culturally responsive and supportive enough?
