This summer, Zach Leatherman spent eight weeks in Lexington, Kentucky as an intern for the Migrant Education Program (MEP). The MEP advocates for migrant children, who often do not receive the education services owed to them by law. It also runs a summer camp each year to help integrate these children into our school systems. During his time with the MEP, Zach served as a translator and mentor for camp participants; afterwards, he wrote a paper about English-language acquisition in the Hispanic context and his own growth as a student of languages. In this presentation, Zach will summarize his experiences and discuss how the ELL field might benefit from entrepreneurial efforts. Zach extends special thanks to Dr. Fred de Rosset, who advised him throughout the summer.
