I was honored to deliver the keynote during the annual meeting of New York State Association of World Language Administrators (NYSAWLA), a professional organization that supports World Language leaders with professional development, advocacy efforts, access to resources and the development and administration of regional language exams.
I was able to share success stories from the Bilingual Revolution, and presented examples from the Arabic, Chinese, German, Greek, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Spanish dual-language programs and parent-led initiatives.
The conference was held at Hofstra University on March 8, 2019. This year’s theme was “Let’s fulfill the promise! Bilingualism for ALL!
Congratulations to NYSAWLA President Francesco L. Fratto for his leadership and advocacy for multilingual education in the United States.
