Success Story

Nancy Escamilla teaches 5th grade at E.P Foster Elementary, Ventura, where they integrate science, math and language arts. We believe that the way they integrate science, math and language arts is very effective in motivating all students - including English learners - and helping them to improve significantly in all subjects. 50% of their students are language learners. Their language skills in particular can be greatly strengthened through the highly engaging science subject matter, use of journals, science vocabulary, and inquiry-based approach to learning.
