Describe the environment where students thrive (what does it look like, feel like, sound like, etc.?)

I am inspired by the moments in classrooms where students grapple, push against the norm, consider multiple perspectives, and question thoughtfully. EL Education creates opportunities for teachers and students to really think about what they are the learning and why they are learning it. From a language dive to a life-worthy Expedition topic, I love how EL anchors its schools, staff, teachers, and students in the importance of content-based, collaborative inquiry throughout the learning process.

Crew means the courage to trust, listen, support, and celebrate the power of team.
