All Learners Supported

There are 22 incredible 6 - 7 year old children in my classroom. Of those 22 students, for 14 - English is their second language. My students show up every day with smiles on and work as hard as humanly possible to learn to read and write and communicate in English. I do not know Nepali, and I do not know Pashto, and my Spanish experience comes from 4 years of middle and high school course work. 

I know the anxiety I feel when traveling to a new country, and struggling to speak. Struggling to ask for help, for clarification - these should not be stifling the 6 year olds in my classroom as they are learning the foundational elements of their educational career.

With two sets of inner ear translators, I would be able to give explicit instructions that my students can understand. Additionally, I would be able to learn more about them as learners, and humans. As much as I am trying to learn, I need support. Will you help me communicate with my students?
