Camp addresses state’s need for bilingual teachers

Rossana BoydFort Worth ISD high school students with dreams of teaching will learn from the pros June 10–13 in the Future Bilingual Teachers Academy — a summer camp that responds to the state’s growing need for highly qualified teachers of English language learners.

Master teachers will tell the 25 students about careers in bilingual education and show them how to create lesson plans for English language learners. Beyond learning about teaching careers, the students will experience college life by staying in residence halls, eating in student cafeterias and visiting UNT classes.

“Some of these students may not have realized before they attended this workshop that they, too, could attend college,” said Rossana Boyd, above, director of the Future Bilingual Teachers Academy and director of the Bilingual/ESL Teacher Certification Programs. “Through this workshop, we are opening doors for them to access higher education and learn about a career in teaching and helping others.”

Texas faces a growing need for bilingual educators, with more than 800,000 English language learners enrolled in Texas public schools, Boyd said. The Future Bilingual Teachers Academy is part of the College of Education’s year-round efforts to produce teachers qualified to teach English language learners.
