Dr. Yzquierdo has worked closely with English
Learners and EL teachers in multiple capacities. Her
experience includes high school science teacher and
new arrival team, where she taught students from
all demographic groups, including ELs and first-year
immigrants. She has held a variety of other positions
including science department chair, sheltered
instruction peer facilitator, district ESL instructional
specialist and educational program specialist. Dr. Yzquierdo has received numerous awards
and honors during her time in education including teacher of the year, accommodations
from the Texas House of Representatives, and fellowships in both Switzerland and Swaziland.
Her doctoral research focused on the factors contributing to the success of high school
immigrant students and she continues researching and presenting on this important topic.
As the child of an immigrant, the teacher of numerous immigrant ELs throughout the years,
and a researcher, Dr. Yzquierdo has seen first-hand what it takes to support English learners
and immigrant ELs so they may see success.

Students in content-area classrooms are required to manage increasing amounts of academic vocabulary
in order to be successful. This training offers effective strategies that can be used to build academic
vocabulary skills for students in an authentic and engaging way. During the training, you will learn how to
teach content vocabulary, how to help students navigate the academic language found in textbooks and
on tests, and how to help students become independent learners of new vocabulary. You will gain a deeper
understanding of the types of academic vocabulary students need to use, and practice real life strategies
you can use right away in your classroom!

Carol Salva Boosting Achievement of SIFE Students
Cedar B Today’s education journey can be complex for any learner. Students with Interrupted (or limited) Formal Education (SIFE) often arrive in our
Sessions 1 & 2
classrooms with minimal English. They may also struggle with varying degrees of literacy and content background. Do not dismay. These
students cannot only survive; they can THRIVE in our grade level classes. It is not only possible, it is happening now. Come hear the stories of

these recent immigrants and the lessons we are learning from them.

Whitney Crews Creating a Culture of Inclusion by Helping ESL Students Find Their Voice
Cedar C ESL students in our regular classrooms can often be overwhelmed by their lack of words to adequately express themselves with their classmates
Sessions 1 & 2 and teachers. Then add the frustration of learning an academic language as well. If you find yourself needing simple ways to build a culture of

inclusion and to provide opportunities for your ESL students to participate, then this session is for you. Come away with practical,
easy-to-implement ideas you can take back to your classroom today!

Cedar A
Sessions 3 & 4 How to Use Simple Objects as a Springboard to Jumpstart Conversations and Practice Reading, Writing & Communication Skills
Teachers have long known that students love to touch and explore objects but many have underestimated the power of investigating objects to

accelerate language development. Many students are tactual or kinesthetic learners, and learn best when they have a direct tactile
experience. Explore two highly effective and practical strategies, Story-in-a Bag & Vocabulary-in-a-Bag, that will have students fully engaged,

as they explore, describe, listen and write about what they are learning!

Carol Salva Rapid Literacy Advancement for SIFE and Newcomers

Sessions 3 & 4 The number of EL (English Learner) students has greatly increased in Texas in the last ten years. As a result, the number of students requiring
bilingual education has also increased dramatically in Texas schools. In this session, we will reflect on the goals of bilingual education and
explore some strategies that, according to research and our district data, have proven to be effective contributors to our bilingual students

academic success. We will also share how we have implemented these strategies as part of our dual language program.
