I work with English Language Learners (ELLs) at a school with a large bilingual population as a support teacher. This year, like many years, we have new students who are in intermediate grades (3-5) and read at a kindergarten or first grade level, and their math skills often correspond. These students come from areas where school is not necessarily available. Clearly, the classroom teacher cannot meet all the student's instructional needs, but then neither can I in a half hour or forty-five minute block. Luckily, we should have an instructional assistant to work with this particular ethnic group this year and their time can be focused on the most struggling students.
