I serve a diverse group of academically and intellectually gifted students. As the AIG Specialist at my school, I test students to determine if they would benefit from AIG services and then meet with parents to review the results of this testing. It would be very helpful for me to be able to communicate with Spanish-speaking students and their families in their native language.
Relationships with my students and their families are very important to me since we work as a team to ensure their student's success!
Our school has a wonderfully diverse population of students, and many of our students' families are not fluent English speakers. I have recently completed a continuing education Spanish class in order to help me better communicate with these families; however it is very expensive to continue taking such classes. I need an online subscription to Rosetta Stone in order to practice my Spanish each day. This will directly benefit the students that I teach and their families.
Rosetta Stone will improve my Spanish language skills so that I can better communicate with my students and their families.
Education is a partnership between school and home, and I want the very best for each of my elementary-aged students. This cannot happen without clear communication.
