West Contra Costa Unified Teacher Scholars (2017-18)

Montalvin Manor Elementary School

Montalvin teacher scholars are focusing on academic language instruction to support all students, especially their large English Learner population. They are also investigating how to expand their repertoire of data sources as they take an asset-based stance to understanding student learning.
