Dual Language Instruction
PSJA Carmen Anaya Elementary is working on giving students instruction in a Dual Language setting. Dual Language is currently being implemented Pre-Kinder through fifth grade. The goal of the campus is to work towards creating bilingual and bi-literate students and provide them with all the necessary skills to succeed beyond high school.
We are committed to improving the quality of instruction at PSJA Carmen Anaya Elementary by providing valuable professional development for our staff. To ensure that students are getting the education they deserve, contract personnel and district and campus leaders (national and state agency representatives at times) will regularly observe the classroom to examine and monitor student participation and work. Data will be gathered from classroom visits to determine what additional trainings are needed to assist teachers. Immediate and meaningful feedback will be provided so that teachers will improve instruction. We believe that, at PSJA Carmen Anaya Elementary, this initiative will have the biggest influence on our students’ lifelong success.
