Team Aspire

 ABOUT THE TEAM:

East Hartford High School celebrates the diversity of all of its students. In order to support our English Learners (ELs), there are numerous classes and supports for the development of academic content knowledge and English Language acquisition. The Sheltered EL team, Team Aspire, is a structured, organized support for New Arrival ELs with low levels of English Language Proficiency. While on the team, ELs are provided the same content curriculum as their native speaking peers but instruction is at their level of English Language Proficiency—this supports a student’s acquisition of English as well as content knowledge. In addition, students on Team Aspire have specific ESL classes dedicated to reading, writing and grammar. This year on Team Aspire, we have students from sixteen countries representing four different continents. As a team, we love to celebrate success, we believe experiences-- like service learning and field trips--are an important part of learning, and we take risks and try new things while supporting one another. We are looking forward to making this year our best year yet!
