Immersion Assistants & Interns: What Do They Do?

An Immersion Assistant (IA) or an Immersion Intern (II) are teaching assistants who 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 IIs are critical to our kids' success.

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


"We're all lucky to have children in a public school immersion program. Let's all do our part to make sure they get the full benefit of this opportunity."
