I am presently a ESL teacher. I taught kindergarten for two years and first grade for 27 years. When asked to be a member of the select cadre i accepted because i was needed in my school district. I now have a problem going to the other first grade teachers and asking them if i can be of some assistance to them. I have let them know I am available and can help them but no one is responding. Someone please give me an idea on how to assist without being pushy!

That's a tough one. Others have to want to be helped. I invited some friends to an after school meeting just to share ideas and materials from EM. You might try inviting them to a sharing session and see if that helps. We also discussed lesson ideas at the meeting. Maybe that would help start your communication. It sure sounds like you are eager and trying.

I think you need to hook them with enthusiasm! Find some neat ideas on this sight and share it with them. Continue to share the ideas with them. Don't wait for them to come to you. If they choose to use your suggestions, then their class will benefit. If they don't, you can't blame yourself! Hang in there! I think you will be able to influence them!
