As an educator to immigrant Head Start parents who are learning English, I see both the parents and their children in a struggle to learn a new language, while also trying to adjust and navigate in a new culture.

Technology is quickly becoming an integral aspect of the classroom. Students are now able to use the internet and computers to enhance their education and engage with content and peers.

As a teacher, the word policy had a type of visceral reaction for me. Changes to policy invariably seemed to shift the very same teaching terrain that I was just starting to master.
