Blog: Immigrant Connections
This blog by Immigrant Connections is a great resource for school leaders and family engagement professional to re-think how their school partners with immigrant and refugee families. Does your school have an “international night”? One blog post focuses on 10 alternatives to build deeper and more meaningful relationships with immigrant and refugee families.
Here’s what our Director had to say about a training provided in Ohio by Laura Gardner from Immigrant Connections:
“I highly recommend Laura Gardner as a trainer and resource for supporting teams who would like to learn more about developing partnerships with immigrant and refugee families. Laura’s professional development training for our statewide network of family engagement professionals on Building Partnerships with Immigrant and Refugee Families was excellent. She is extremely well-versed and passionate about this topic, and she took the time to tailor her presentation to our state with important statistics, national resources, and local contacts. The supplemental materials and pre-training videos/articles she provided allowed those at the training to have important, informed discussions about working with immigrant and refugee families in their region. We all walked away with ideas for how to strengthen practices within our organizations.”
