Your school district aspires to be committed to excellence in
education, defined by innovative practices and a professional staff
who empower students to succeed in the global community of the
21st century. Rich in ethnic diversity, your community has the
advantages of a multicultural setting which reflect the changing
demographic of the United States.
As such, the challenge arises as your teachers are faced with the
daunting task of how to integrate English language learners into
their classroom communities. Having no formal education in
second language acquisition theory, teachers require a greater
understanding of the unique cultural and linguistic nuances
associated with such diversity. In order to provide a quality
education, teachers must be equipped with the strategies and
methodologies that work for all students.
Which is why you are here, ready to Up the Bar.
With a background ranging from teaching to administration, Up
the Bar Consulting truly understands the tremendous challenges
that districts face as they strive to create inclusive environments
where all students, including English language learners, will
succeed. We specialize in working with multicultural populations,
highlighting the benefits associated with the mosaic of diversity.
Our guiding principle is simple yet essential - Teach them as if
they were your own. It applies to all teachers just as it applies to
Up the Bar Consulting. Expectations are high, just as they should
be. Up the Bar Consulting is all about raising expectations...
and meeting them.
