The 2012 Our Kids Summer Institute was held June 19-20 at Valley High School in West Des Moines. The institute provided participants with the opportunity to network with other educational professionals and to discover new strategies for working with English language learners in Iowa. Teachers with a variety of positions including general education, special education, and ELL benefitted from the information provided.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Kristen French. Additional session topics included RTI, Co-Teaching/Collaboration, Technology for ELLs, and Literacy for Limited Formal School Population.
