Newcomer Teachers of San Antonio


  


  



Texas receives the second largest number of new refugee arrivals in the United States and San Antonio is home to a large number of these newcomer families.  At CITL, we strive to support this population by creating a network of Kindergarten through twelfth grade newcomer teachers from multiple schools districts across the city. We address the unique needs of newcomer classrooms by providing professional development focusing on English language acquisition and literacy development as well as the social and emotional needs of learners who have little or no formal education. Additionally, we provide a space for the teachers to support each other’s shared experiences.
