Lynbrook ENL certified teachers had an engaging and informative day of learning new skills and strategies to assist our growing population of English Language Learners at the Long Island Teachers' Institute!

In order to keep abreast of what is new in their field, as well as how they can best meet the unique needs of our students and their families, our teachers received a day of invaluable professional development. Under the theme Equity for ELLs: Elevating Language and Learning, topics covered included: Effective & Culturally Responsive Techniques for teachers of ELLs, Creating Inclusive Environments, Cultivating Expert ENL Learners: ELLevating Content Area Knowledge through SWRL (Speaking, Writing, Reading, Listening), Bridging Borders in Education: Empowering Teachers with Strategies for Multilingual Learners in Mainstream Classrooms, Nurturing Newcomers: Preparing them for Success by Scaffolding Language and Literacy for Equitable Access, Empowering Newcomer Families through Community Building and Advocacy, and so much more.

The Lynbrook ENL staff collaborated with various Long Island school districts across Nassau and Suffolk Counties to learn together, so that all ELLs can be successful in their academic and social emotional learning journeys! The event is hosted by The Long Island Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network in collaboration with The New York State Education Department, Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages. #OwlProud
