<p>This professional project describes the development of family literacy nights for our school. My life experience has motivated me to help our ELL students and families. As an ELL student myself I struggled with literacy since I didn’t have access to resources to help me. With my own experience and working as an ELD teacher for one year and assessing our schools needs I quickly realized that there wasn’t enough family engagement or involvement. Our ELL students are some of the most underserved students with low reading scores. Using my experience and research I was able to plan for eight family literacy nights. My goal is to support students with literacy by engaging our families with our school.</p>
