The Multilingual Programs Department invites all parents of English Learners to our annual Parent Leadership Conference. Parents will receive valuable information and the tools to better support their children. The conference will be held on Saturday, October 24th from 9am to 12:15pm.
The current circumstances of this school year require a different approach when supporting our families. The focus for this year’s parent leadership conference is how to nurture the parent-child and school-home relationships in general.
The 2020 Parent Leadership Conference will feature recognized speakers who will inform and inspire parents of English Learners to become advocates for their children’s education. Multilingual will provide experts for families of English Learners that include—Valentina Gonzalez, a highly renowned educational consultant with Seidlitz Education, Debra Paz, one of the most notable members of the Rice University School of Literacy & Culture Office, and Claudia Rodriguez, recognized presenter for Teacher Created Materials.
