What’s [ESL] ?

Just in case — flagjigsaw

From the VA DOE website: English as a Second Language (ESL) programs are designed to assist students in communicating effectively in English, both in and out of school.

A number of resources and services are available to schools to help limited English proficient (LEP) students demonstrate their ability to understand, read and write English in order to function and be successful in school and in American society.

You do NOT need to speak another language or teach in a child’s native language for success! This is quickly becoming a pet peeve. And no, I’m not a bad ESL teacher if I can’t call a parent in Spanish! (Or any other language).
