Kellie Bugajski and Nadra Shami had the honor of being featured speakers this year at the Michigan Association for Bilingual Education (MABE) Annual Conference. This institute inspires educators and provides practical strategies that can be implemented immediately in classrooms. This ensures that English Learners are not only able to feel a greater sense of belonging, but also receive the tools they need to excel in core academic classes. Both Nadra and Kellie presented on topics related to Culturally Responsive teaching. MaryEllen Vogt, SIOP author and national presenter, spoke very highly of Dearborn Public Schools’ fidelity and implementation of SIOP methodologies.
