Spanish Speaking Teacher teaching English
Mr. Martinez, Colombian native, was hired to teach English in a school. He is majored and has a master degree in English but his accent is present when speaking. Parents have complained about his accent claiming he shouldn't be teaching English because the language is not his native. Mr. Martinez has had success teaching English in his previous school and students loved his class. Because of parents' comments his new students seemed to be biased about his class. Despite his efforts to make the class engaging, Mr. Martinez doesn't seem to make progress. What should Mr. Martinez or the school's administration to mitigate the comments and change parents and students' behavior?

Administration should definitely be notified about any negative comments. Make sure they are documented every time. If parents have something to say, maybe invite them into the classroom to see how you teach.
