Help Your Students Communicate with their Children’s Schools

DSC00727We hope that you found your initial tutor or teacher training workshop to be worthwhile.  We also hope that you view it as only the first step in an ongoing professional development process which will continue throughout your tutoring and that you will take advantage of additional training opportunities, both within and outside of LCNV. These will broaden and further hone your tutoring and teaching skills, enabling you to better serve your student while simultaneously enriching your own volunteer experience. Indeed, volunteers often tell us that they find such subsequent training to be especially valuable  since they are now able to  bring their experiences to bear on what is being presented.

Each year LCNV provides several free in-service training opportunities at the James Lee Community Center. One such workshop is coming up on Monday, January 28, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Many of our students who are parents find dealing with their children’s schools to be an intimidating and bewildering process.  “Helping Your Students Communicate with their Children’s Schools” is designed to provide you with information that will help your student overcome this problem. Molly Chilton, LCNV’s former Basic Literacy Program Specialist, and Carisa Pineda, LCNV’s Family Learning Program Specialist, will lead this presentation on common issues faced by parents, which include: expectations for students in different grades; resources available to students and parents; rights of parents; and communicating with schools and teachers.

This in-service is useful for both tutors and teachers working with students who are parents of school-age children. To attend this workshop, please register in advance by emailing or calling 703-237-0866.
