Bienvenido! Welkom! Yōkoso! Bienvenue! Byenveni! Huānyíng! Willkommen! Benvenuto! There are many ways to say “Welcome” across the world and there are many ways to welcome ELs and Immigrant students to schools. This presentation will focus on the needs and challenges of creating welcoming environments for students who immigrate to the United States, particularly in difficult political and cultural climates on the local, state, national and international level. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the United Nations Global Compact for Migration and will receive the tools needed to implement best practices and engage resources that foster educational environments that are welcoming and lead to student success.
