I just found out I am going to be the new ESL coordinator at the middle school where I teach. I am excited about the opportunity to help the students, but this is only my second year teaching middle school (3rd overall) and I am unsure how to prepare for this position. I was wondering if any of you: . Have any tips on how to be an effective ESL coordinator . Want to share anything (tips or important nuts and bolts details) that might help a first-time ESL coordinator . Have any book, curriculum or study material suggestions to help me get prepped for the job. Any help would be appreciated thank you!
