In partnership with Catholic Schools Collaborative and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, M4E piloted the Maestro en Casa+ program to a set of 12 schools in South Los Angeles in January 2017. Over 100 families of English Language Learners benefited from the pilot and successfully graduated in June 2017! Based on the surveys the participants completed, the families and especially the parents of Elementary English Language Learners, loved Maestro en Casa+ for its enriching content about acculturation, English language acquisition and its Colorin Colorado resources.
Archbishop of Los Angeles, Jose H. Gomez and MATT Foundation's Executive Director Aracely Garcia Granados joined Catholic Schools Collaborative Executive Director, Ellen Holton, in congratulating the MATT Maestro en Casa Plus participants! Expanded roll-out of the program is now expected to take place in the 2017-2018 academic year! We are all so very excited!
