Betty Alford and Mary Catherine Nino's Leading Academic Achievement for English Language Learners is a practical guide designed to equip school leaders with the strategies and tools they need to shape a culture of high academic achievement among their English language learners. Based on the premise that language acquisition is a change process during which positive relationships matter, Alford and Nino emphasize the importance of the principal not only as an instructional leader, but also as a student advocate. Using principals' voices from the field, case studies based on a multi-year professional development project, and examples of successful principal practices, Alford and Nino illustrate-in a clear, straightforward manner-how school leaders can actively engage in best practices to develop teacher capacity for working with ELLs and ultimately increase student achievement among this population.

Mary Catherine Ni�o is Associate Director for Project ENLACE, a school-university professional development partnership aimed at increasing English language learner achievement at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Dr. Ni�o was a secondary English, Social Studies, and Reading teacher for ten years in Texas before entering educational leadership. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in English and graduate degrees in Educational Leadership. Realizing the need for a stronger development of content teachersrsquo; knowledge of second language acquisition processes, she worked with faculty at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas to foster this knowledge in pre-service teacher curriculum and in professional development school sites. Responding to the changing demographics of her students, Dr. Ni�o developed a responsive curriculum approach which incorporated student experience, interest, language needs, and content into a cohesive approach to student learning. From this work, she has developed quality professional development for pre-service and in-service teachers and principals. Dr. Ni�o continues to consult with area schools, model teaching in classes, working with area ESL coaches and teachers, and sharing her experiences as a content teacher integrating language development into core curriculum.
