Dual Language/Bilingual Elementary Teacher 2021 - 2022

Reports To:   Building Principal

 

Position Purpose:    

The Dual Language Program integrates native English-speaking students with native Spanish-speaking students for academic instruction which is presented in both languages.  Social and academic learning occurs in an environment that values the language and culture of all students and sets high standards to ultimately achieve academic success in Spanish and English.

 

Classrooms are composed of approximately 50-percent native English speakers and 50-percent native Spanish speakers.  The 50/50 ratio enables all students to be language models and second language learners. 

 

The language used for instruction is also broken down by a 50/50 ratio.  Fifty-percent of classroom instruction is provided in English- and fifty-percent of classroom instruction is provided in Spanish.  Each teacher speaks only in the designated language and communicates using a range of engaging strategies to promote student understanding and language development.  Children at this age are adept at acquiring language in meaningful contexts.  All students are taught to read- write- listen- and speak two languages.

 

The dual language model creates an additive bilingual environment for both groups of students because it allows them to maintain and develop their first language while simultaneously acquiring a second language.
