Workshops on various topics (language development, cognition, teaching methods...)
Review and redesign of ESL/bilingual curriculum and supporting materials.
Implementation of an effective intervention program for ESL/bilingual students.
Personalized and interactive coaching sessions for bilingual teachers.
Usually I have very low expectations for development programs... Karla blew me away. It was the best PD session I've ever attended.

Karla Garjaka was my coordinator when I first started teaching ESL. She forever made a difference in my teaching by challenging me to always find different ways to be a better educator and not just a teacher.
