Help your LEP Students succeed by learning Spanish for Teachers!
Spanish for Educators provides some basic, yet specific Spanish skills for teachers in order to help you manage your classroom. Additionally, we help you give clear direction to your limited English students so that you can help make their transition into an English speaking classroom much more achievable.
Year after year we have more Spanish only students in our schools working hard to fit in with their classmates, but it’s not easy to succeed in school. Therefore, goal of our Spanish for Educators classes is to help educators communicate effectively in Spanish with students and parents who are not yet fluent in English. However you choose to provide Spanish for Educators training, we’re glad to be a resource for you. You can implement programs during your School District’s Summer Teacher Trainings, on teacher workshop days, Summer Spanish Immersion programs in Costa Rica, or at another convenient time in the year. Regardless of the format, Common Ground will customize these Spanish for Educators classes to fit the unique needs of your school.
