All of the PreK-2nd grade bilingual teachers, parapro, ELL coordinator, administrators, and instructional coaches will participate in professional development on Spanish language arts, dual language and best practices in assessment. The participants will attend 3 sessions during November and December provided by consultant, Molly Aceves. Besides consulting with many school districts, Ms. Aceves is a bilingual speech and language pathologist with an extensive background in early literacy in both Spanish and English. These workshops will help our teachers work with current bilingual students and help us to prepare for our dual language implementation in 2017.
