When families and districts partner for growth, English learners make the gains needed for success in and out of school!

Every child is a Scholar. Scholars aren't alone; they have a team—teachers, parents, and classmates—all working together toward academic goals. Families and schools working together to ensure our Scholars succeed—this is the mission of HMH Family Engagement.

One Educator's Journey: HMH Family Engagement

It's one thing to read about a new program for engaging EL families; it's another to witness a teacher's experience first-hand. Nicole McGrain, EL Resource Teacher from Methuen, Massachusetts, describes how HMH Family Engagement breaks down barriers to engagement for EL families, which results in greater family involvement and student progress.

See how families and schools working together can accelerate English learners' academic language and literacy growth, transforming students into Scholars who are proficient in academic English—a true asset in today's increasingly global society. 

My family benefited from participating in the program. As a family we learned to efficiently organize our time together. We planned our homework/study time and tracked our progress together. I became a little more involved in monitoring homework and attendance. I tracked my children's attendance and homework for three months and rewarded them with a special family dinner. What I enjoyed most about my participation in the program was spending quality time with my children and seeing their self-esteem soar.
