Two new programs at Western Illinois University are helping teachers educate your children.
The Office of Study Abroad and Outreach is offering two new programs to better prepare teachers. One program works with teachers in the Monmouth-Roseville School District, teaching them how to work better with students who speak different languages.
The second program takes place at Sterling High School and teaches students and teachers the duties of being a principal.
"It’s going to help the teachers teach better, it’s going to help the district meet state requirements on that count and it will help students as they learn English and have a nice talented and bilingualism that will help them, so that’s the goal," Chair Department of Educational Studies said.
There are currently 27 teachers enrolled in the language program and 21 students enrolled om the principal endorsement program, which kicks off September 8.
