EVENT DATE: Jan 13, 2014
I work in a large urban school district with English Language Learners. I have 50 students, many of whom are currently in their second year in the USA. Although I have been given the standard curriculum materials, they are insufficient to meet the extreme needs of these students. I believe that the most lasting positive impact I can make in these young people's lives is to improve their literacy skills. Working within the educational system is a lengthy and frustrating process which has not garnered any results to date. These students deserve better. Help me help them!
