Parent, teacher, student working together leads to success

A message of unity and collaboration was brought to audiences at the Emerald Coast TESOL Winter Conference as ESOL resource specialist Maegan Baker talked about how teachers, ELL students and parents need to work together.

During her session, Baker pointed out how forming a team allows all three parties to communicate better, avoid misunderstandings, achieve set goals, provide support for each other, and meet scholastic and state needs.

She shared some anecdotes on how she has had success and adjustments (i.e. one young girl having her mother her translate and do her homework) to make ESOL teams work and urged the group to share stories.

In the end, Baker urged all to seek to work with student and parent and set real goals and make sure all understand their role.
