East Palo Alto Charter School, East Palo Alto

This team of reading teachers has been teaching in East Palo Alto for 7-20 years, and they want to become conversationally fluent in Spanish. Team members will each complete an intensive program of online Spanish tutoring through Verbalicity and attend trainings by the Center for Applied Linguistics to connect their language lessons to their teaching. Through this work, team members will be better equipped to support Spanish-speaking students and also gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by students learning English.
