Join us for our First Things First Workshop for Paraprofessionals.

Participants will examine their beliefs about home language and culture to ensure the whole child comes into the classroom; consider the value of strengthening the child's first language to foster learning and develop proficiency in English; and explore strategies to scaffold instruction for the children in the classroom in order to increase access to content.

Space is limited to 40 paraprofessionals and registration is required. Register at The instructor of the course is Jamie Polzin and if you have any questions you may contact her at 212-598-6800.
