Personnel Resources Directory for the Education of Vietnamese Refugees. Vietnamese Refugee Education Series, No. 5.
Trang, Kim Dung; Sutherland, Kenton
This directory contains the names of educators and paraprofessionals who might be of help in the education of newly arrived Vietnamese refugees in the United States. The criteria for selection of the individual educators were: (1) the educator has taught, or was trained to teach, in Vietnam or Cambodia; (2) the educator has some special expertise, such as training in applied linguistics, ESL, or bilingual education, which would make him or her a useful resource for schools which have numbers of limited- or non-English speaking refugees; or (3) the educator has some special resource, talent, or technical assistance ability that could be put to immediate use by school districts. In some instances individuals were included who, while they might at present be difficult to credential as teachers, could serve as paraprofessionals or teacher assistants. The educators are listed alphabetically by surname, followed by the following information: address; telephone; birthplace; birth year; sex; citizenship; languages; degrees; universities; specializations; credentials; relevant experience; availability; and administrative, technical assistance, translation, resource, and research capabilities.
