Spanish 101 for Administrators
This workshop has been developed in response to the administrator’s need to communicate with newly arriving Spanish–speaking students and their families. This workshop will introduce the fundamentals of Spanish conversational speech and often-used phrases that relate to everyday school situations. Attending this workshop will help you to begin to bridge the communication gap and engage English Language Learners and their families. Thus, creating an inclusive learning environment.
