Effective collaboration between ESP and teachers is critical to student success. All adults working in public education, communicating and working together ensures all students have equal access to the general education curriculum and implement strategies to help improve results for their students. This highly informative webinar will focus on how to engage ESP and teachers to work together collaboratively, diminishing the barrier between professions and expanding the collective goal to serve students and improve schools. 

Join us to learn the importance and benefits of teamwork, strategies for creating a school culture of collaboration and how to overcome ESP and teacher working relationship potential barriers. The webinar also highlights two successful models demonstrating effective and collaborative ESP and teacher teams that result in education excellence and school improvement.
