Kristen Medina, English as a Second Language Specialist, with the Lamar School District has graciously offered to host/facilitate English Language Learner support for our area instructors.  These sessions will be held over the distance learning systems within your school district on the second and fourth Monday from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM.  Mrs. Medina will be covering the basics of what ELL is and strategies that can be used to help meet the needs of these students.  Also, she is always open to covering anything ELL related that the teachers fell that they need help with.

The Southeastern BOCES will issue certificates for each session you attend and will designate these as hours for your ESL/ELL requirement for recertification.  Mrs. Medina will be utilizing the book by Larry Ferlazzo: The ELL Teacher’s Toolbox: Hundreds of Practical Ideas to Support Your Students and possibly Unlocking English Learners’ Potential: Making Content Accessible by Diane Staehr Fenner.  The Southeastern BOCES will purchase copies of these books and distribute them to each member district for staff members to share and have available for the work sessions. 


First session will start on January 13th at 5:00 PM.
