Abstract

Migrant educators across the United States support children of highly mobile agricultural workers. Since families move often, many children have missed school and some have not yet learned essential skills needed for school success. Therefore, this paper describes a virtual professional learning community designed to help migrant educators across New York State identify and address students’  needs in the areas of reading and math skills.
