Learning Leaders: Helping Students Succeed

Back in Oct or Nov the kids’ school had a 3-day training for parents to be Learning Leaders.  This program establishes volunteers to assist with reading, writing, ESL, math and other academic activities at the elementary, middle school, and high school level, as well as non-instructional aid such as general office and library assistance.

I volunteer once a week for 2 hours, helping the English side of a class in the dual language program.

The teacher asked me to work with students who are English language learners.  This prompted me to research more about ESL (English as a Second Language) teaching.

The kids I've been working with are wonderful and very receptive to my help.
