This paper explores the experiences of an English Language Learners (ELL) teacher in a co-teaching relationship. This paper explains the difficulties that exist in the implementation of the co-teaching model, as well as the struggle to create parity in a co-teaching partnership. The existing research presents co-planning, implementing the co-teaching models in the classroom, and creating parity among the co-teaching pair as three important factors in a successful co-teaching model. A contributing factor to the success of both the co-teaching relationship and the implementation of this model in the classroom comes from the support of administration, the school, and the district at large. This paper explains the experience of five ELL co-teachers, their input as to how co-teaching can yet be improved, and their ideal co-teaching scenarios.
