MARINETTE—The Marinette School District expressed a need for a Spanish course for its teachers, administrators and other staff. UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus, was up for the challenge. Kayla Furton, the district’s English Language Consultant, said in an interview with WBAY-TV, “Over the past few years, we’ve seen small growth between school years. But between last school year and this, our English language learning population doubled in size, with the vast majority of students speaking Spanish as their first language.” Linda Hornick, Continuing Professional Education program specialist, and Academic Advisor Bethany Welch from UW-Green Bay, Marinette Campus, and Furton put their heads together to find out what the college could do to help the Marinette School District. The group decided a course called “Spanish for Educators” would provide that help the school needs.
