Immersion Assistants & Guest Teachers: What Do They Do?

An Immersion Assistant (IA) or an Immersion Guest Teachers are:

  • A native speaker of Spanish or Japanese
  • A full-time presence in every immersion classroom
  • An integral part of the language immersion model

Because our kids study math and science in a classroom where only Spanish or Japanese is spoken by the teacher, IAs and guest teachers are critical to our kids' success.

But these staff members are not funded by the district -- parents pay for them.
