A student continuously shows up in the middle of your instruction asking for help in other subjects. As the teacher, you provide the best help possible, but ask the student why he keeps coming to you rather than his other teachers. He claims the teachers are sending him to the ESOL classroom when he asks them for assistance. You assume this is because they do not want to deal with an ESOL student, but you don't always have the time to help them. What do you do?

I would talk with the other teachers who are sending him into the classroom. By approaching the issue as wanting to work with them instead of accusing them of interrupting your instruction, you may be able to come to a solution. Since you are the ESOL teacher, they might take some suggestions from you about how to modify the curriculum so that the student gets some help in the general classroom.

Great points. Reaching out to the teachers that are sending the student to her class is key.

I would bring the student into my class full time. Clearly he is looking to me for guidance, and rather than have him distract me whilst teaching other students, I want to have him on the same track with them. That will give me the time I need to address his language issues and instructional needs.

I will notify the principal and his parents about this too, although I will go ahead and keep helping him even if they tell me I am wrong. It is my duty as a teacher to assist people who are reaching out to me.
