Murfreesboro City Schools Director Dr. Linda Gilbert talks with ESL Teacher Sarah Chumney (English As A Second Language). She is a finalist fo rthe state teacher of the year award. In January, 2016, she was told that 30 ESL students would be arriving from a refugee group and to set-up a program to help these families become successful members of our society. She did it, and to make it more of a challenge--the families were very diverse (some from African countries, some from Middle East, etc.).
In addition Murfreesboro City Schools Director of Communications Lisa Trail tells about the Chow Bus, BOB Bus (books), and preparing students to enter kindergarten.
