My Students

"Arrange whatever pieces come your way." -Virginia Woolf

Our inner city students come from different backgrounds and struggles.

We are in the process of raising our student graduation rates and test scores to get out of probation. During this time, our foreign language learner population has grown. We have French, Russian, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish. Studies have shown that learning a second language improves the students' first language.

My Project

We need to update our language lab with Plantronics Audio headsets to be able to use our programs for speaking and listening. Our teachers will take the students weekly and alternate the languages going to the lab. The students will have the opportunity to use current technology to participate as authentic language speakers and listeners.

With your help, students will have the pieces they need to improve their speaking and listening skills in the foreign language that they study.

The will be able to combine all of the language learning proficiencies into one.
