Save the Dates!

Next training for NEW tutors: Saturday, September 22.
Applications are available online at www.refugee-esl.org. These forms must be printed out and submitted via fax or U.S. mail.

In-Service Training
These dates are tentative and should be finalized by September 1.
  • Movie night: Rain in a Dry Land, Thursday, September 13, 6:30 p.m. This PBS documentary film follows the lives and resettlement progress of some of the first Somali Bantu families who came to the U.S. The film provides a compelling look at issues surroounding cultural adjustment and perceptions, and an insightful exploration of the resettlement process itself.

  • Class: Back to Basics: Techniques for Every Tutor, Saturday, September 29, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. A general refresher on some techniques you may have forgotten or just always wanted to try.

Because we will need to utilize staff other than myself for these inservice trainings (including a projectionist and additional teachers), please RSVP so I can gauge the level of interest and anticipated attendance. Thanks!
