How It Works
In recent years, school and district leaders have requested a more tailored support during the planning stages and early development of a dual language or immersion program.
When booking my time for ongoing programmatic support, leaders can schedule specific times to talk through some of the challenges they face. I keep my schedule open to schedule conversations either via email, phone, Skype or in-person.
Indeed, I believe that there is no right way or wrong way of designing a dual language or immersion program or addressing particular issues once a program has been created. It’s about taking a very close look at your student population, teacher availability and qualifications, parent population and curricular constraints. Making these decisions is very different whether you have a Hebrew program in downtown D.C. working with essentially non-Hebrew speaking students, or a Spanish program in rural California who serves primarily Spanish-speaking students.
Principals have found it useful to call on me to solve issues related to:
Teacher recruitment & retention
Managing parent expectations
Growing student population
Bilingual teacher evaluation
Bilingual student assessments
Curriculum design across languages and grades
