Welcome! If you teach or tutor refugees, young or old, than you’ve come to the right place. Several years ago, I worked as a Case Manager in refugee resettlement. Though brief, this experience was the catalyst that started me on my journey as an ESL instructor and current graduate student in the field of Foreign Language Education/TESOL. It is my hope that this blog may serve as a place for educators to network with one another in the service of refugee students.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provides for the world's refugee population, most of whom are currently living in refugee camps around the globe. The UNHCR website is a treasure-trove of information for those who want to know more about the refugees among us. The website contains editorials on current events, links to partner organizations, country and people group specific information, as well as a plethora of statistics on every aspect of refugee life you can imagine. Though it may seem daunting, it is well worth your while to comb through the dense amount of material available to you on this site.
