Thank you Lisa Kocian!
Thank you Boston Globe!
When you are a small peg in the whole system you sometimes get very frustrated trying to have your words heard, your intent understood, and your dream realized.
Such is the case with me as Boca Beth … I can’t even get my own county’s school system (Hillsborough County Schools) to allow me to conduct a FREE workshop for teachers about how easy and fun it can be to bring Spanish and English together in their classrooms even when they themselves are monolingual.
Check out this article written by Lisa Kocian of The Boston Globe that speaks directly to the fact that these young children thrown into an English-only class experience academic, physical and emotional challenges that often times will create only larger problems in our school system as the years go on.
Wake up administrators!
Wake up politicians!
Bilingual programs (such as my Boca Beth Program) could be implemented immediately in every elementary school classroom and provide both the Latino child English as his new language and the Anglo child Spanish as her second language – thus preparing them both for a very global economy!
Training? It helps the teacher when she or he can learn how to do this from me or my staff, but it is not a necessity! Any teacher can go on our web site, download the FREE suggested activities that go hand-in-hand with each of our bilingual songs written specifically for children and start the second language journey tomorrow!
What are you thinking could help your city, your town, your child’s school with this language learning dilemma?
