ELL Teacher Training – Prepare Your Teachers for 21st Century Success English Language Learning (ELL) students are the fastest growing segment of the nation’s student population. By the end of the decade, students whose first language is not English will makeup more than a quarter of all US students. Nearly every state in the nation is experiencing immigration shifts that make ELL training a necessity for school districts. This may be the defining educational challenge of the 21st century. Educational Training Specialists, LLC is here to help your teachers meet this challenge with interactive and engaging ELL teacher training sessions that familiarize teachers with research-based strategies to reach every learner, ELL or not. We offer three different ELL teacher training models, all of which feature the same high quality of professional development and methods that will transform the instruction going on in your classrooms.

They have provided our staff members with innovative and useful tools that they can immediately implement in the classroom to better meet the needs of their ELLs.
