In a growing multicultural and multilingual society the number of students with a second language will increase and teachers will need to become more effective and productive. Soon, the majority of teachers in USA will serve a member in their community (student or parent) who will speak a second language. My idea is to create a Coaching/ Mentoring Program for any teacher who serves in these communities. We will brainstorm ideas to focus on each specific context needs and find solutions, we will observe best practices around the country to create a solid portfolio, we will produce resources and work with the community. I propose a strong program where teachers will be empowered and become leaders in their communities.
