Expert support for new and existing multilingual education programs.

Just getting started or working on improvement? Drawing on district and campus leadership experience, we work collaboratively with clients to look closely at where you are now and where you want to go. We focus on systemic alignment of effective curriculum, instruction, professional learning, assessment, family engagement, and leadership for Dual Language and Content-Based Language Instruction (ESL) at the elementary and secondary levels.

"Thanks so much ... for all that you have done for [our district]. Your work has been thoughtful, patient and optimistic, despite many obstacles. It has been deeply collaborative and genuinely shared with the community, in ways that have made it strong and smart. It has used data and stories to bring people along. And it has created something that will serve students, our district and our community in ways that I hope we are just beginning to see." ~ District Board Trustee

Building Cultural Competence and Empowering Linguistic Diversity

Skilled Facilitation of Language Stories and Name Stories Sessions 

We facilitate interactive group activities where participants explore their own experiences with learning language and they develop understanding and empathy by hearing the stories of others. This is an essential prerequisite to implementing or improving a bilingual/ESL program.

We conduct a similar activity with names, which leads to a greater understanding of the power of our educational systems to affirm or reject our students' core identities. 

"Your Language Story presentation uplifts, affirms & connects us all in the important work that we do. Affording us the opportunity to ground ourselves & empower our students within their own lived experiences." Co-presenter and Session Attendee

Leadership Development for Dual Language and Content-Based Language Instruction

Professional Development and Coaching at All Levels of the Organization

We support the development of leaders at the district, campus, and classroom level for Dual Language and Content-Based Language Instruction program implementation and improvement. Through partial-day presentations, full-day workshops, and multi-session institutes, we help develop the capacity of current and prospective leaders to implement bilingual/ESL programs with knowledge, passion, and skills.

"Your class at UT was the best preparation for being an AP at a dual language school I could have asked for! Your voice is one I hear often as I make decisions." ~ Former student in a graduate course

Bilingual/ESL Policy Development

Helping Districts Strengthen Local Policy to Support Effective Multilingual Instruction

Local Policy EHBE is an underutilized tool for ensuring effective bilingual and ESL programs for emergent bilingual students. We work directly with school boards, superintendents, bilingual/ESL directors, chief academic officers, community advisory groups, and others to facilitate the review of current local policy and to adopt revisions to ensure the quality and durability of Dual Language and Content-Based Language Instruction programs.
