I teach in a school with a rich and diverse student body. The majority of my students are English speaking, but I also teach ELL students, and would like to better communicate with their families. This year I have Philippine, Spanish, and Marshallese speaking students. I have learned that with Gmail I am able to translate messages into other languages. I will use this tool to share information about my course and student achievement with ELL students and families. I think this will be a great opportunity to break down language barriers and encourage these families to become more involved in our school culture.
