In their sixth year of partnership, the Newcomers teacher leaders and OUSD’s Office of English Language Learners and Multilingual Achievement (ELLMA) Elementary Language Specialist are participating in our Lead by Learning Network to support their leadership of professional learning in the district. The Newcomer teacher leaders use inquiry to guide teachers in instructional improvement for newcomer students.
