Why Have CLASS Pre-K CLASS Observation Training in One Language When You Can Have it in Two?

15 Dec 2016 by Gina Gates

 CLASS Trainings in Spanish

Have you heard the news? Teachstone has just launched our newest training—Pre-K CLASS Observation Training in Spanish! We kicked off this training just this month in sunny Miami, Florida. That's right, two whole days of learning how to become a CLASS certified observer, all delivered in Spanish.   

We had the pleasure of welcoming 10 energetic participants at this training, representing Florida, Puerto Rico, and Spain. Not only did they get to learn about one very important part of the process of professional development for early childhood educators—collecting reliable data—they got to do it in their native language.  

In our ever-changing field of early childhood education, we have seen the diversity in our classrooms expand, not only cultural diversity, but also in languages. More children are now attending early childhood centers where instruction is given in more than one language by bilingual teachers. As well as dual language classrooms, there are children who attend schools where Spanish is the only language spoken. The Spanish Pre-K Observation Training was developed by a team of dedicated staff to support teachers and coaches in their mission to continuously improve teacher-child interactions.

The kick-off of this training at the Miami regional training was a huge success, so we are even more excited to offer this at several more of our regional trainings in 2017. The following are just a few of the upcoming dates where Spanish Pre-K Observation Trainings will be offered:

We look forward to welcoming you en español at one of our future trainings!
