Hello,

My name is Chelsea Walter and I am the "ESL Specialist" at Colorado College. I am looking for input regarding my title, as I feel that it may be out of date with current terminology.

A brief description of my work: I provide academic support to culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students via coursework and individual consultations, as well as consult with faculty on best practices (those that are particularly culturally responsive) for working with CLD students.

Might any of you have an idea on a more holistic title? I feel that "ESL Specialist" conveys a remedial and deficient nature and does not encompass the CLD student and educational experience itself, but rather focuses on the "ESL" label.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
