“We have people in the community who want to help but are not sure that they are qualified or what it would look like.” That sentence from our PTA president blew me away. I was so busy with my classes that I hadn’t thought about this. My lack of volunteer support was not from a lack of desire!
So I made this quick, unpolished video to help our community see that they can have a tremendous impact on our newest students. It is not a PD for ELL teachers. It is meant to be a user-friendly introduction how a lay-person can help me when they work with our kiddos after school or any time they are helping them without an explicit assignment.
Please offer feedback. And use and share!
