The Korean Bilingual program is helping Korean students whose native language is Korean to integrate into the mainstream classroom. They not only learn language skills, but also enhance their cultural understanding through the program. I am very fortunate to be able to work with enthusiastic and challenging students and I am always amazed to see the progress that they make overcoming the language and cultural barriers. At the beginning, I need to speak some Korean, but before long I find that English-only instruction is appropriate. Ultimately, providing a solid foundation for future academic achievement is the primary objective of the Korean Bilingual program. Also, bilingual students are encouraged to keep their native languages while adjusting to American life, being a good citizen and an invaluable member of our society. The parents' support and eager participation in the school activities are also very much appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and please contact me if you have any suggestions or concerns.
