We, the ESOL team, provide tiers of support for language learners. We actively nurture their academic and socio-emotional development. Through collaboration, we  empower teachers by providing strategies and scaffolds that support all levels of language acquisition. We value and encourage students and parents to foster bilingualism and cultural diversity. Beyond the classroom, we advocate for our families and act as a bridge for the community. We warmly welcome new students to our Westlawn family.
