Teacher Training Workshops
Professional Development Programs are a result of thirty years of worldwide experience in the field of bilingual education and the arts for the very young.
I’m Bilingual! workshops are hands on, practical, creative, interactive and highly engaging. The material presented may be easily implemented in any classroom setting. Yolanda uses recent research on best practices to effectively promote language acquisition through the arts. This enables teachers to confidently use the arts to integrate the Spanish language and culture into any classroom setting and actively engage students in the language-learning process. We provide schools with the tools for successfully engaging young learners into the bilingual and bicultural world.
