    4 Research Participants Needed for An Interview (ESL/ELL/ELT Resource Teachers, or related title)

    I seek ESL/ELL/ESOL Resource Teachers to participate in a research study by being interviewed about their experiences working as an ESL/ELL Resource Teacher.
    The title usually is ESL/ESOL/ELL Resource Teacher, but it may be slightly different. This research is about the responsibilities many ESL/ELL/ESOL teachers have in addition to their language instruction (e.g., placement, testing, advocacy; mainstream teacher support or workshops).

    I'm curious to know how teacher education programs can better prepare individuals who will become ESL/ELL/ESOL teachers. It would take approximately 1 hour and would be conducted on Zoom. I can schedule for a time/day that works best for the teacher.

    1. Do you work in the US?
    2. Do you work in the K-12 public schools?
    3. Are you working as an ESL/ELL teacher?
    4. Are you currently working as an ESL/ELL Resource Teacher or related title (e.g., ESL Coordinator with teaching responsibilities)?
    5. What is your job title?
    6. Do you have any responsibilities such as: administration (i.e., placements, proctoring standardized assessments), peer resource support/education, translation, social/emotional/behavior support for ELLs, etc.?
    If you answered "yes" to all of these questions, the educator is eligible to participate.

    Please let me know if any ESL/ELL/ESOL Resource Teachers (you or a colleague) have time and are willing. This knowledge would be insightful and help many future educators. Educators can reach me at with questions or to schedule an interview. Thank you.
