Embracing multilingual learners

from Austin Daily Herald

"Hola," "Bonjour," "Mirhaba," and "Selam" are just a few examples of "hello" you might hear as students greet one another at IJ Holton Intermediate School, where 25 different languages are spoken.

Each of our students is so much more than their identified LEP (Limited English Proficiency) status. You might ask, well what do they bring to the table? They bring compassion and they bring perseverance. Many have been through unfathomable hardship, poverty, war, famine and grief, and yet they strive for a better life. more
