Lester Prairie Multilingual Learners
My name is Lyndsey Grand, and I am the new Multilingual instructor here at Lester Prairie Schools. I recently graduated from Concordia College Moorhead with a teaching license in English Communication Arts / Literature, and a minor in Spanish Literature.
I spent much of my college career with unaccompanied minors and refugees entering the Fargo/Moorhead community. Through these experiences, I was able to surround myself with many different languages and cultures in my short four years of study. These are the fondest memories from my time at university: absorbing Turkish, Syrian, and Somali language and culture.
Through the settlement process, many immigrants are required to take state mandated English courses. I had the privilege of teaching the English language in afterschool programs K-12, in addition to adult community courses at Adult Basic Education in Moorhead, MN.
My goal for this year is use my past experiences to create a safe learning environment where every student can succeed.
Let's Have a Wonderful Year!
