Bilingual Education

Does your school have community programs they do with their bilingual parents? Our school doesn't do much for our bilingual community. I'd like to start some this coming year and need ideas.

I was part of a grant that wrote and delivered curriculum for parent education called family literacy. We met 1 night a week and gave families a light meal and childcare for their littles while we coached the parents on literacy strategies and then practiced with their kiddos right there. My new district has found some section 41 money to do the same. I can scan you some lessons if you are interested. I have 4 years worth. Lol

My district doesn’t do enough. It’s a rural, closed-minded, white farming community. The other EL teacher and I do things with our families to create a community because they feel very left out. We have family nights to share information or celebrate. They love doing potlucks, so every family brings a dish. We offer free babysitting provided by our high school students who need community service hours so the parents can socialize. We bring people in from the community to show them the resources that are available. We do an end of the year party to acknowledge our graduates and students who have exited EL. Our families also invite us to their family celebrations too. Our district doesn’t do anything in Spanish, so I usually invite students and parents in for special meetings to explain what they did at the English meetings because they don’t feel welcome even if I’m there to translate. I have more ideas if you ever want more, but the potluck thing is always a hit with my families .

My district gets a grant from the state that allows us to have a Saturday Academy. It is for 4 straight Saturdays. The program is divided into 3 periods. There are several fun academic, science and reading based classes the students can take. Then for the parents, they offer a technology class for all three periods. They are taught how to navigate the internet, how to join our district subscriptions for their children and subscriptions we have for the parents such as parent portals, to see their child’s report card, Rosetta Stone, where they can learn English. The parents love it and the teachers really try to make it relatable to them. Hope that helps?!

With COVID sticking around for a while, would you still look around for something new if your current job is still stable at least through mid 2021? Motivation is mostly for a pay bump, but seems like many companies have instituted pay cuts at minimum, so I’m assuming offers won’t be very aggressive anymore.

Consulting during corona - I’m interesting in switching to consulting and interviewed with a few firms (pre-COVID) and got an offer plus a few offers put on pause. It would be helpful to get clarity on what the industry is like now and if anyone recommends still making the switch or staying put (especially interested in Deloitte, Accenture, PWC, EY human capital practices)
