Preparing Excellent Teachers of All Language Learners (PETALLs) is a National Professional Development (PD) project funded by the U.S. Department of Education (T365Z120232) to prepare all educators to improve the education of English language learners. The PETALLs project is a collaboration between the College of Education at UMass Lowell and the Lawrence Massachusetts Public Schools. PETALLs provides ongoing professional development to the College of Education faculty, PK-12 teachers (pre-service and in-service), paraprofessionals and school administrators.
